Recruits Hold Third 
In Deputation Series 

This Sunday evening the third in the 
series of Life Work Recruit deputa- 
tions will be conducted in the Annville 
United Brethren Church. Paul Horn 
will be the speaker, while Jane Ehr- 
"art will be in charge of the devotions. 
s Pecial music will be rendered on the 
violin by Mary Ann Cotroneo. 


Showing the effects of insufficient 
training and practice, the Blue and 
White varsity dribblers dropped a 
riotous contest to a smooth passing 
Franklin and Marshall basketball 
team, 48-25, last Saturday night on 
the spacious Lebanon High floor. 

The Diplomats, a seasoned veteran 
outfit, gave notice of the fact that 
they will be serious contenders for 
the league title this year, as^ they 
passed and shot the sphere with sur- 
prising ease and skill, this being their 
third game. 

The Valley started the ceremonies 
when Kubisen chalked up two fouls. 
After DeBold tossed a foul and Ley- 
kam a field goal the Blue and White 
tossed caution to the winds and 
whisked the oval about the court to 
post a 13-4 advantage at the end of 
the first quarter. 

However, F. & M. found the range 
and as the Dutchmen began to show 
signs of tiring, the Diplomats, led by 
Wagner and Leykam, scored 18 points 
while the best L. V. could do was to 
score 4 counters. 

Continuing their high scoring tac- 
tics in the second half, the Diplomats 
went on another spree to outscore the 
Valley 17-4 in the third quarter. And 
as the final stanza was ushered in, 
F. & M., with its reserves doing the 
heavy work, tallied nine points to four 
for the Dutchmen. 

L. V. C. showed signs at times of 
possessing latent talents. However, 
the short period in which they have 
been practicing has not been of suf- 
ficient length to allow the players to 
develop their skill, and to acclimate 
themselves to Coach Intrieri's system. 
Staley and Mease seemed to be the

At the Water Filtration Plant it 
was learned (in spite of the very 
noticeable Pennsylvania Dutch accent 
and method of expression of the 
guide) that there are only two factors 
involved in the working of such a 
plant — coagulation and filtration. 
Water obtained from the Swatara is 
first introduced into a sedementation 
tank. Alum and caustic soda are add- 
ed to coagulate the solid material; 
lime is added to correct the hydrogen 
concentration, thereby producing the 
best possible conditions for coagula- 
tion; and one-tenth part of chlorine 
per one million gallons of water is 
added to kill living organizms. By 
these processes eighty to eighty-five 
per cent of the solid matter has settled 
out before tin- water is Altered through 
gravel and sand over a series of baf- 
fles. After filtration the "pH" is 
brought up to 7.G to 8.0, and the water 
is ready for use.

Taylor To Present 
Faculty Recital 

Programme Announced 
By Vocal Instructor 

Lebanon Valley College Conserva- 
tory of Music presents Myron Taylor, 
tenor, in a faculty recital on Monday, 
January 15, at 8:00 P. M. in Engle 
Hall. Although Mr. Taylor, vocal in- 
structor, is a new-comer to the facul- 
ty of L. V., he is well known and 
liked by the student body. 

Myron Taylor, a member of the 
Metropolitan Opera Company, has 
not only made an enviable reputation 
for himself in opera, but is well 
known as an excellent concert and 
oratorio artist. 

He began as a concert pianist, and 
was teaching piano at the Kansas 
City Conservatory of Music when it 
was discovered he had an exceptional- 
ly fine tenor voice, which he started to

rvnniversary uance 

According to the anniversary pre- 
sident, Carmella Galloppi, all arrange- 
ments have been completed for the 
sixty-ninth anniversary celebration of 
the Clionian Literary Society to be 
held Saturday, January 13. 

The Clio members and their escorts 
will dance to the music of Chet Lin- 
coln and his orchestra in the beautiful 
ballroom in the Hotel Abraham Lin- 
coln, Reading, Penna. It is estimated 
that 110 couples will participate in 
the festivities. This number includes 
about 15 alumnae of the society who 
are returning to their alma mater for 
the' anniversary celebration. 

Dr. and Mrs. Stokes, Dr. and Mrs. 
Black, and Professor and Mrs. Rut- 
ledge will serve as the chaperones 
for tin' evening. 

This year provisions have been 

made for those members of the society 
who do not care to attend the dance. 
Reservations have been made for 
them to witness the ice hockey game

Football And Tennis Teams Record 
Wins As Baseball AndBasketball Lag 

Delving into the now dusty files of 
sporting activities as recorded at 
Lebanon Valley during the year of 
1939, we find that only mediocre suc- 
cess was experienced. 

The Valley quintet performed far 
below expectations as they won only 
five games out of twelve in the league, 
while they won one game from St. 
Joseph's and lost two to Mt. St. 
Mary's and La Salle outside the con- 
ference. The Blue and White success- 
fully campaigned twice each against 
Drexel and Muhlenburg and once 
against Ursinus, but they were large- 
ly unsuccessful in contests with Get- 
tysburg, F. and M., and Albright, 
losing two close contests to each, as 
well as once being trounced by Ursin- 
us early in the season. Bright spots 
in the L. V. offense were furnished 
by lanky Raymie Frey and Tony Roz- 
man. Captain Frey again led the 
league in scoring honors for the 
second straight season, but the 
teams's record as a whole was much 
below that of the previous season. 

With the coming of spring and 
warmer weather the boys donned their 
baseball uniforms and started on their 
most unsuccessful season in recent 
years. Of the eight contests staged 
by the Valley nine, they were able to 
win only two these being victories 
over Bucknell and Muhlenburg, the 
latter quite thrilling as they won it 
with a lone tally in the fifteenth 
frame at Allentown. Despite the ex- 
cellent hurling of Frankie Kuhn most 
of his efforts went for naught as the 
hitters failed in most of the clutches, 
the Gettysburg game being an excell- 
ent example of this fact. An excellent 
frosh infield was the chief boast of 
the past season. 

Along with the poor showing of the 
diamond athletes we find in direct 
contrast the excellent campaign of the 
valley tennis squad. The netsters 
amassed a total of eight wins as 
against four victories for their op- 
ponents. After dropping three out of

Dr. PI 




Chapel ] 

During an extended chapel period 
on Wednesday morning Dr. F. B. 
Plummer, of Hagerstown, Maryland, 
and Lebanon Valley graduate, spoke 
on his "Glimpses of Russia." The talk 
was based upon his observations dur- 
ing a ten week trip with the Eddy 
Seminar about a year ago. 

Dr. Plummer's tour brought him in 
touch with people from all walks of 
life from the manager of a eoopera 
tive farm to the head of the movement 
of militant atheism. Entering Russia 
through Finland, his first picture of 
the country was of one bordered by 
a ten foot barb-wire entanglement 
and with custom inspections rivaled 
only by Germany. 

The speech was divided into Dr. 
Plummer's favorable and unfavorable 
impressions of the fourteen hundred 

miles of the U. S. S. R. including Len- 
ingrad, Moscow, and Kief which he 
covered. Among the former group 
were the palaces of culture and rest 
with their recreational opportunities, 
the new large apartment houses, the 
museums peopled by large crowds of 
poorly dressed people hitherto kept 
from them, the huge parks formerly 
ones for royalty, and the enthusiasm 
and healthful appearance of the chil- 
dren and youth groups. 

Unfavorable impressions were left 
by the evidences of the revolution: 
the poor traveling conditions on the 
railroads, the monthly wages of per- 
haps twenty dollars for ordinary 
workers; the barefoot women laboring 
beside men; the laxness of marriage 
and divorce laws; the high prices of

Wake Up! 

The other day, a remark was over- 
heard, to the effect that the social 
affairs sponsored by the literary 
societies on campus had deflated con- 
siderably since rushing season. In 
fact, to put it rather bluntly, nothing, 
or very little, has been done since 
the pledges were initiated. 

Understand, this is not a novel 
state of affairs at Lebanon Valley; 
it happens every year. The societies 
this year started the fall term in 
great fashion by providing for our 
enjoyment a social function practical- 
ly every weekend. For this, they re- 
ceived due praise. Then after the 
great signing, the bottom seemed to 
drop out. 

To be fair, there was ample excuse 
for the societies lying low the last 
few weeks and also for their doing 
so at the present time. The two weeks 
before Christmas vacation are packed 
with so many festivities that everyone 
is kept stepping . Then too, with ex- 
aminations booming over the horizon, 
perhaps it will pay rich dividends 
not to indulge in too much social life. 
However after the epidemic of blue 
books has been survived, let's have 
more Friday and Saturday evening 

This isn't aimed merely at the liter- 
ary societies, but applies to every or- 
ganization on campus. If each group 
would cooperate and share the work, 
too great a burden wouldn't be placed | 
on any society. 

We realize only too well that to 
sponsor a dance with a genuine or- 
chestra and with the refreshments to 
go with it would be too great a finan- 
cial strain on the organizations. But 
it has been proved by previous turn- 
outs, that the college students enjoy 
an informal gathering even when the 
refreshments are conspicuously miss- 
ing. There's always the nickelodian. 

Periodically there arises complaints 
of the scarcity of social life at L. V. 
over weekends. For this very reason 
many people pack up and leave till 
Monday comes around again. This 
condition is regrettable when enter- 
tainment could be provided with very 
little expenditure of funds and effort. 
After the clouds of exams have blown 
over, let's see what can be done to 
improve the social atmosphere on 

Student Committee 
. . What's Happened? 

Speaking of the activity of campus 
organizations, what has happened to 
that new committee composed of 
students representing the different 
phases of campus life that was to 
work with the faculty in deciding pro- 
blems relative to student interests? 
Its work in mapping out the social 
activities for the first semester was

Wat Nou sends Greetings to His Most 
Highly Efficient, Most Noble and Most 
Serene Editor, the Editor of LA VIE 

While travelling incognito in your 
most glorious country this fall I was 
impressed by the multitude of marvel- 
ous things which I saw there. How- 
ever, on your campus I came across a 
most time-worn and outmoded prac- 
tice not seen on any of the better col- 
leges which I visited. This horrible 
example of disciplinary Dark Ages is 
the cut system. Why such a system 
should be allowed to exist in your free 
and enlightened state is something 
which my humble Indian mind cannot 
fathom. If your students do not wish 
to take advantage of their opportuni- 
ties in securing an education why 
make them? If they can get as much 
out of a course by reading the text- 
book and the required reading and 
then be able to pass the course, why 
force them to attend classes in which 
they only sleep anyway? 

Why not give quizzes in your classes 
each week, and then if the student is 
present, all right; if not, he naturally 
would not pass. If you did this you 
could abolish the cut system. This 
system I observed is used in some way 
or another in most of the universities. 
With this other system the scholas- 
tic average would be brought up and 
fewer cuts would be taken than are 
taken now. As it is, the cut system 
is more of an evil than it is a help, 
because there is really no honest in- 
centive to go to classes. 

The worst feature of your system 
is that the students are charged extra 
for overcuts. I cannot follow the rea- 
soning which decrees that one must 
pay to go to school and also pay for 
not attending. That seems to be mere- 
ly a most lucrative bit of graft. As I 
said before, no such system prevails 
on the campuses of the better colleges 
and universities. If that is an exam- 
ple of your enlightenment, then let 
us sing with Belloc and Chesterton 
"Darken our lightness, we beseech 
thee, O Lord." 

My humble apologies for troubling 
you with this lengthy epistle. May 
Allah be with you.

Maharajah of Soj Wat Nou. 
Ed. Note — The opinions of the Ma- 
harajah do not necessarily express the 
editorial policy of LA VIE COLLE- 

such that it gave great promise for 
bigger things in the future. 

Since student government is em- 
phasized at L. V. C, it seems regret- 
table that nothing more has been done 
in this direction. As stated in this 
column several issues previous, it 
would be an excellent idea if this body 
would be made permanent. 

The group that did the work in 
October was not truly representative 
of all campus interest but this could 
easily be remedied. A committee of 
this nature would do much to create 
a feeling of harmony and cooperation 
among the different organizations. 

With the second semester flying to 
meet us, why can't something definite 
be done about this committee? It's 
a good idea and good ideas are at too 
great a premium to be thrown to 
the winds.

So there I was on a bench in a 
small town with no date and no pros- 
pect of any. Dot and I had just had 
another one of our quarrels (no one 
would think that a little brunette 
could scratch so). I just sat, smoked 
cigarette after cigarette and tried to 
collect my thoughts. They were so 
jumbled up! To make matters worse, 
I had just lost my job on the local po- 
lice force, where I had worked as a 

It was cold, bitter cold, and snow- 
ing. Already there .were two inches 
of snow white frosting all over me. 
In self-defense I got up and started 
walking — and thinking about Dot. I 
loved that girl and had no doubt she 
loved me. 

Automatically I started towards her 
apartment but stopped in a drug store 
where I bought two packs of cigar- 
ettes and a "Seven-Up." 

"Fine evening, Dunnigan," it was 
the soda clerk, a friend of mine named 
Barry who spoke. I butted my cigar- 

"Fine evening, nothing," I snorted, 
"I get kicked off the force, my girl 
sends me back to the Indians, I've 
got a lousy cold and you say it's a 
fine evening." 

"Take it easy, Dunnigan," he said. 
"The chief will see his mistake and 
you'll be a cop again in no time." 

"Listen," I leaned over the counter, 
"Last night I messed up a chance to 
get Tony Merk who's hanging around 
this vicinity. Result: the green car- 
pet and the bounce." 

Barry shook his head sympatheti- 
cally and left me to stew in my own 
juices, while he waited on several high 
school girls. They were giggling 
about a little incident that had just 
occurred. For a while Barry was busy 
making drinks for them; then he went 
over to them and started talking to 
them. After two or three minutes he 
started to laugh. Ordinarily I don't 
mind a healthy laugh, but Barry's 
laugh reminded me somewhat of a 
hyena who's heard an off-color joke. 
When he had finished with the girls 
and had come back to me, I said nas- 
tily, "What's so funny?" 

"Your girl just went by the high 
school in a limousine." 

"Who was with her?" I asked, 
nearly burning myself with the match 
with which I was lighting a cigarette.

Strange and unexepected things are 
happening in Great Britain these days. 
All of the country is clamoring for an 
explanation of the circumstances 
leading to the retirement or dismissal 
of Leslie Hore-Belisha from the War 
Cabinet as Secretary of War. 

Although the details of the situa- 
tion are not as yet known, three fac- 
tors were believed to be responsible 
for Mr. Hore-Belisha's retirement. 
There was a campaign against him in 
certain high social cliques, the exis- 
tence of a rift between the War Sec- 
retary and the High Command of the 
Army and most important of all, his 
advocation of a more vigorous, liberal 
war policy. 

Mr. Hore-Belisha has attempted a 
process of modernizing and democrat- 
izing the British army which was cer- 
tainly necessary. His methods were 
energetic and efficient, but he tramp- 
ed on people's toes and violated some 
outworn traditions. 

When will Britain awake or is she 
awake? It is believed by some auth- 
orities that this shift is only one of 
several, all of which will be climaxed 
by the retirement of Mr. Chamberlain 
himself in favor of a more dynamic 
and spectacular leader. There is more 
to this retirement than is seen now 
on the surface. Follow it closely.

"Where'd they go?" 

"I don't know. Hey, who you 

But I was out of that store in a 
flash. I ran into a lamp-post, slipped 
on some ice, and sat down hard. Just 
as I was getting up, my feet went out 
from under me. A middle-aged man 
passed carrying some excess baggage 
around his middle, saw me and snort- 
ed: "Damn drunk." 

Shame-faced I picked myself up. I 
said nothing but went on as quickly 
as the layer of hard packed snow per- 
mitted me.

Seniors Take Juniors 

Frosh Submerged, 34-15 

Te«ms Show Good Form 

by josie 

On Monday we officially opened 
our inter class basketball season with 
a double-header. In the afternoon the 
Seniors took over the Juniors 20-4 al- 
though the Seniors only had five play- 
ers against the Junior sextet. High 
scorers for the Seniors were Saylor 
and Brubaker. In spite of its being 
the first game of the season the teams 
showed good form barring the fre- 
quency of time out. 

In the evening the Sophs walked 
over the Frosh to the tune of 34 to 
15. The freshmen show good possi- 
bilities but a deficiency in team work 
was evident due to their not having 
played together before.

their first four matches, the racket- 
wielders started a streak of seven 
straight wins before they were halted 
by the strong Bucknell team. Stand- 
out performances were recorded by 
Bud Umberger and Stew Shapiro, the 
latter winning ten singles matches 
during the season without a set back 
as number two man on the squad. 

After the few months of summer 
vacation, the coach called out candi- 
dates for the '39 football squad, and 
proceeded to send them through a 
heavy routine of calisthenics with the 
assistance of the new assistant coach 
Marino Intrieri. Following a bad 
opening game with Boston College's 
Cotton Bowl eleven the Valley eleven 
proceeded to win six games of a series 
of nine on the schedule. It was not 
until after the Blue and White had 
successfully vanquished the strong 
F. and M. Diplomats and completely 
annihilated the P. M. C Cadets in the 
better of the two Hershey contests 
that local fans realized the true worth 
of the team. Susquehanna proved an 
easy victim in the Annual Home- 
coming Day Contest as did Juniata's 
Indians on Dad's Day. Suffice it to 
say that the St. Joe and Albright 
games were recorded on the wrong 
side of the ledger much to the chagrin 
of the Valley players and followers. 

Thus we find that 1939 was not one 
of the best in sports activities written 
on the pages of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege history. The total of six wins 
out of fifteen games played by the 
local quintet gives them an average 
of only .400. Baseball suffered even 
a worse fate as only two wins out of 
eight contests gives an average of 
.250. On the brighter side we find 
tennis with eight victories and four 
setbacks which is a .667 percentage. 
The record of six triumphs in nine 
games is an average of .667. Total- 
ling all of the four major sports into 
one we find that they give a total of 
twenty-two victories and the same 
number of losses which is but a .500 
average for the year. 

Frosh Win Opener 
In Second Half 

Matala, Steiner, Gollam 
Star As Yearlings Rally 

In their first appearance of their 
1940 basketball season the Lebanon 
valley freshmen defeated the Frank- 
lin and Marshall frosh by virtue of a 
last half rally that enabled them to 
overcome the deficit piled up against 
them by F. and M. in the first two 
periods. Unable to get started in the 
first stanza, the Dutchmen found the 
scoreboard reading 7-3 during the 
first rest period with L. V. on the 
short end. The Frockmen continued 
to flounder around and consequently 
went to their dressing quarters with 
a score of 18-7 against them. 

Coming on the floor in the third pe- 
riod, the Valleyites began to find the 
basket. Paced by Bob Steiner, whj 
led the scoring of the evening with 
10 counters, the Frockmen cut the lead 
of their opponents to 23-19. In the 
waning moments of the game the 
freshmen tied the score at 27-27 ana 
then went on to put the game on ice 
by zipping the cords from afield twice 
in quick succession. The scoring of 
the evening ended at that point with 
the Valley leading 31-27. 

Gollam and Matala contributed line 
floor games besides garnering runner- 
up honors to Steiner in the scoring 
column. The most consistent player 
for the Diplomats were Stock, Heller, 
and Mahalic who each collected six 
points for their cause.

N.y.A. Rebuilds Fort 

First steps toward reconstruction 
of Fort Roberdeau, historic landmark 
in Blair County, Pennsylvania, as a 
patriotic shrine for the people of the 
nation have been made possible by an 
NYA project now getting under way 

One of the frontier outposts over a 
century and a half ago, Fort Robe 
deau played an important part in 
making possible westward expansion 
and in the economic life of this coun 
try at that time. 

Named after a noted Revolutionary 
War general and member of the Con 
tinental Congress, Daniel Roberdeau, 
the stockade-type fortification was 
erected primarily as a defense center 
for protecting lead mines in the Sink 
ing Valley and Bald Eagle areas of 
Pennsylvania. It was from these 
mines that much of the bullet lead 
for the Continental Army was ob 

Fort Roberdeau was built on the 
site of an earlier frontier stockade 
known as Roller's Fort. The latter 
was used by the pioneers as a refuge 
against repeated attacks by Indians. 

Student Recital 

There will be a student recital 
in Engle Hall next Thursday, 
January 18, at eight o'clock. The 
following artists will take part: 
organ — Virginia Goodman, piano — 
Adele Kadel, tenor — Earl Caton, 
soprano — Jeanne Schock, and violin 
— Mary Anne Cotroneo. 

The student recitals are designed 
both to offer a cultural program to 
the students and as an opportunity 
for experience for the artist.

Greetings, salutations and condo- 
lence to my readers. Holidays are 
past, and the "exams" are coming 
fast and furiously; but college life 
' inarches on." 

Now all naughty boys had better 
watch out, or the "Big Bad Congress" 
will get you. The long-talked-of sen- 
ate cards are in the hands of the con- 
gressional leaders who have vowed to 
use them. The days of "super hot 
foots," "hot seats," buffet luncheons 
and all other favorite hostilities are 
over, boys; unless you want to be 


I wonder if Dotty thinks Jackson 
Zellers looks cute with those silky rib- 
bons adorning his "dink." He is one 
of those little boys who didn't like 
that pretty blue hat that he purchas- 
ed when he made his collegiate debut. 

The frosh fellows in the "Conserve" 
certamly know their class standing 
(Or do they?). They tell me that one 
frosh spied Jessie Robertson standing 
beneath tlhe mistletoe that hung over 
the "Conserve" day students' room's 
doorway before Christmas. Politely 
looking about, he saw Joe Fauber near 
by, so he tapped him on the shoulder 
and pointed to the lass. Now, far be 
it from Joe to break an old tradition, 
esper-ially on this luscious occasion. 
Why doesn't somebody tell me these 
things ?

Bill Bender was quite overcome 
with the extravagance of his father, 
when student chemists related how the 
good doctor had taken eight nickels 
from his pocket and after mashing 
them to bits, ordered them to be dis- 
solved in acid. Bill sighed, "There he 
is throwing nickels away and his poor 
son is starving in the gutter. Why! 
with that amount, she and I could 
have gone to a movie and topped it 
off with sodas." Bill do you remember 
the days B. C, Before Constitution, 
when you and Currey "flipped" for 
fat quarters ? 

If the girls in South Hall went wild 
over the marines, it is very evident 
that there would be a mad flocking 
about Ted Powell, if he were to ap- 
pear on the campus in that decorat- 
ed scout commissioner's uniform of 
his. They tell me that he is a new 
man when he dons his uniform. We 
should have some scout demonstration 
on the campus during Boy Scout 
Week just to give the little girls a 
break. He has been hiding his light 
under a bushel long enough.

Joe Conrad, that handsome rosy- 
cheeked "pre med" from Palmyra, has 
announced his membership in the 
"Men's Club" by appearing on the 
campus with the distinguishing fea- 
ture of the club — a mustache. Now 
where is that strong group of barbers 
that took care of Harold Moody last 
year? Probably they could throw a 
wrench in the machine of this club. 

Senior President Names 
Commencement Committee 

At a meeting of the Senior Class 
held Thursday, January 4, the presi- 
dent, Jack Moller, appointed the fol- 
lowing committees for commencement: 
Cap and Gown — Charles Belmer, 
chairman, Rachel Holdcraft, Richard 
Moody; Invitation and Program — 
Cecil Hemperly, chairman, Lillian 
Leisey, Robert Dinsmore. 

The only other business discussed 
was the possible use of the extra 
money remaining in the class trea- 
sury. A definite decision will not be 
made until some future meeting of 
the class. 

GLENN MILLER, New Dance King, 
now broadcasting over Coast-to- 
Coast C.B. S. Network, three times 
weekly, (or Chesterfield. 

Glenn Miller's is America's favorite 
dance band today, leading all others 
in record sales and making box office 
history in personal appearances. The 
Andrews Sisters are the most popular 
singing trio that ever came down the 
pike, both on records and on the 
variety stage. Chesterfield has de- 
finitely scored a coup in bringing 
these stars together for the radio 
audience, in the first regular sponsor- 
ed broadcasts. 

Meet the new King! Glen Miller 
is 29 years old. For years, he ar- 
ranged and played for such musicians 
as Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman 
and Ray Noble, forming his own band 
only when the time was ripe — when 
he could assemble musicians suitable 
to the new dance style which brought 
him fame. Time Magazine recently 
said, "The Chesterfield Hour confer- 
red Swing's Pulitzer Prize on Miller 
by signing him to take Paul White- 
man's place." 

Debating Managers 
Frepanng Schedule 

Managers of both men's and wo- 
men's debating announced this wee^ 
that they are busy making arrange- 
ments for a full program of debates 
this season. Louise Saylor and Jack 
Moller are the students in charge ol 
this extra-curricular activity. 

With contests with Drew Univer- 
sity and Wagner College, of Stater. 
Island, N. Y., already scheduled, Mol- 
ler is attempting to arrange a trip 
which would include several colleges 
in the Philadelphia area and such old 
debating rivals as Muhlenberg, Mora- 
vian, and Upsala. Two teams, each 
prepared to handle both sides of its 
question, will make the trip. 

It is probable that Elizabeth town, 
Albright, and Dickinson will be met 
in regular home-and-home debates, 
since they are situated comparatively 
close to Lebanon Valley. Manager 
Moller hopes to secure Dickinson for 
a contest over the air. 

So far Louise Saylor has scheduled 
debates with Ursinus for February 
27, and Gettysburg for March 11. The 
women debaters will argue on the 
question of American isolation from 
the present European war. 

Lillian Leisey, Louise Sayior, Betty 
Anne Rutherford, Mildred Cross, and 
Floda Trout remain from last year's 
team, while freshmen Fay Brigham 
and Marva Gruman are prospective 

Some time during the week of Mar. 
11 Hartwick College's debaters, bct'i 
men and women, will be present on 
campus. This will be the first time 
that Hartwick will have been met on 
the debating platform, although two 
years ago the gridiron furnished the 
scene for a 53-0 defeat at the hands 
of Lebanon Valley. 

Taylor To Present 
Faculty Recital 

(Continued from Page 1) 

After singing a year in operatic 
productions at the Eastman School of 
Music, he went to Italy for operatic 
experience, where he studied with Al- 
fred Martino, conductor of Royal 
Opera in Rome. Later he went to 
Germany to study German lieder and 
to Paris to enrich his knowledge of 
French songs. 

Upon returning to America, Mr. 
Taylor was engaged by the Art of 
Musical Russia to sing the difficult 
role of the astrologer in "Coq d'Or." 
Then he sang many operatic roles, 
among them, Rhadames in "Aidu," 
"Eugen Onegin," Manrica in "II 
Trovatore," and the Simpleton in 
"Boris Godaunoff." He also sang the 
leading role of Philip Nolan in Dr. 
Walter Damrosch's opera "The Man 
Without a Country." 

Mr. Taylor's most recent success 
was in the difficult and exacting role 
of the Rabbi in Max Reinhardt's pro- 
duction "The Eternal Road" which 
ran twenty weeks at the Manhattan 

Opera House, New York. His per- 
formance was singled out from the 
cast of over three hundred. 

Mr. Taylor has a varied program. 
Ruth Harrison Taylor will be his ac-

Gordon String Group To 
Play With Famous Pianist 

On Monday, January 22, another 
ne of the community concert series 
will be presented in the auditorium of 
the Lebanon High School. The artists 
will be Muriel Kerr, pianist, and the 
Gordon String Quartet. 

Muriel Kerr, Canadian pianist, was 
the pupil of Alexander Raab in Chica- 
go and Ernest Hutcheson in New 
York. Prior to her debut with the 
New York Philharmonic Symphony 
Society in 1928, she was a student at 
Juilliard Graduate School. 

Miss Kerr and the Gordon String 
Quartet will collaborate their abilities 
in the final number of the program 
on Monday night when they play 
Schumann's Quintet in Eb Major — 
opus 44. Of the three great compo- 
sitions written for string quartet and 
piano combined by Frank, Brahms, 
and Schumann, this one is by far the 
greatest and most popular. It attains 
almost orchestral proportions in its 

The Gordon String Quartet is a 
contemporary group founded by Jac- 
ques Gordon in 1921. This leading 
American chamber music organiz- 
ation is composed of : Jacques Gordon, 
first violin; David Sackson, second 
violin; William Lincer, viola; Naoum 
Benditzky, violoncello, all absorbed 
and devoted performers. They helped 
to make Chamber music popular by 
familiarizing the American music 
tover with the noble and exciting 
hterature written for that most satis- 
fying instrumental combination, two 
v 'olins, a viola, and a 'cello.

Clionians Celebrate 
Successful Affair 

Clio — the most anticipated social 
event of the year for at least half of 
the co-eds on campus — is over ! Being 
a typical Clio there can be no regrets 
except that it was entirely too short, 
even though it did last its allotted 
four hours. 

Since this was the first time in the 
time of the present student genera- 
tion that Clio did not celebrate its 
anniversary at Hershey Hotel, there 
was quite a bit of interesting discus - 
sion of the comparative advantages 
of Hershey and the Abraham Lincoln, 
the site of this year's dance. Majority 
of the opinions seemed to feel that 
the latter was every bit as good, and 
perhaps even better. There was a bit 
less of the feeling of restraint, more 
of a spirit of congeniality and infor-

I. R. C. Reorganizes 
Club and Cabinet 

Club Meetings To Include 
Speakers, Discussions 

At a recent meeting of the Interna- 
tional Relations Club cabinet, it was 
decided to reorganize the club in or- 
der to increase its effectiveness. A 
constitutional committee composed of 
Carl Ehrhart, chairman, Richard 
Baldwin and Jack Ness revised the 
constitution which was adopted by the 

The Club is now divided into two 
parts, the cabinet and the club. The 
cabinet is composed of all those who 
are most vitally interested in Inter- 
national Relations. Its meeting will 
be in the form of a seminar. Th*" 
members of the new cabinet are Carl 
Ehrhart, Jack Ness, William Scherfel, 
Richard Baldwin, F. Wendal Cassady, 
Jane Ehrhart, Betty Ann Rutherford, 
Ralph Shay, Robert Dresel and Eliza- 
beth Sattazahn. 

The club meetings will be open to 
aii persons who care to attend and 
will include outside speakers, debates 
and talks by members of the cabinet.

This Friday Evening 

A Philo meeting was called by Pres- 
ident Bender, Monday, January 15, for 
the purpose of explaining the new rep- 
resentative council to the society. 
Dick Bell was then selected as the 
Philo representative. 

The society is planning to hold a 
Poverty Dance this Friday night in 
the gymnasium. The following com- 
mittees are in charge of the arrange- 
ments. Bob Hambright and John 
Dressier compose the chaperone com- 
mittee; Robert Nichols, John Lynch, 
decorations; Ralph Conley, Don Hav- 
erstick, Music committee. 

The president announced that elec- 
tion of officers for the second semester 
will take place the end of this week. 

After the report of the treasurer, 
the meeting was adjourned. 

Chem Club Hears Groff 
Speak On Steel Industry 

Tuesday evening at 7:45, the first 
meeting of the Chem Club for the new 
year was held. As a special feature 
they had Mr. John Groff, a chemist 
at the Lebanon Steel Foundry, for the 
speaker. Mr. Groff, a chemistry ma- 
jor, graduated from Lebanon Valley 
in 1937. The speaker had a group of 
lantern slides with which he illustrat- 
ed his talk which was a description 
of the plant, some of the things that 
are manufactured there, and what is 
more important the process by which 
they are made. 

One highlight of the talk was that 
the Lebanon Steel Foundry is one of 
two plants that are developing the 
new sensation in ' the steel world, 
silver steel. This new type of steel 
was produced for the first time in 
the experimental laboratories of the 
Massachusetts Institute of Techno- 

Kalo President 

. . . elected yesterday to lead Kola's 
destinies for the coming semester. 

Kalos Elect Munday 
For Second Semester 

George Munday was elected second 
semester president of Kalozetean Lit- 
erary Society in an election held 
Tuesday, January 16. Named to serve 
with Munday as officers for the society 
were Richard Baldwin, vice-president; 
Florian Cassady, recording secretary; 
Ralph Mease, corresponding secre- 
tary; Joseph Carr, representative to 
student activities committee; Florian 
Cassady, chaplain; and William 
Olexy, Vincent Tavalaro, and William 

Munday succeeds William Scherfel 
who served as first semester president. 
Although the newly-elected Kalo head 
did not hold an office in the organi- 
zation the first semester, he acted as 
Scherfel's right-hand man and was 
responsible for directing many of the 
society's activities and social affairs. 

Delphians Plan To 
Hold Dinner - Dance 
At Harrisburg Hotel 

This year instead of their usual 
anniversary dance Delphian Literary 
Society is taking its members and 
their escorts to the Hotel Harrisburger 
on Saturday, February 24, for a din- 
ner-dance. Miss Holdcraft and her 
committees have been making much 
progress with their plans. However, 
as yet no complete arrangements have 
been made concerning the favors and 
the music for the occasion. Howard 
Gale and his orchestra from Harris- 
burg are now under consideration. 

The alumnae who have been con- 
tacted are very enthusiastic about the 
dinner-dance and expect to return for 
the occasion. The committee in charge 
of the plans for the dinner includes 
Margaret Druck, chairman, Mary 
Grace Light, Phyllis Deitzler, and 
Frances Prutzman. 

The idea of providing for those 
girls who do not plan to attend the 
formal was originated by this society 
last year. Since it met with such 
success it will be continued again this 
year in the form of a theater party 
to be held in Harrisburg the night of 
the dinner-dance. 

Plans Being Made 
i o rorm Permanent 
Student Committee 

Student Representatives 
Elect Horn Chairman 

Representatives from all the organ- 
izations on campus were called to a 
meeting Monday, January 15, by Dr. 
Stonecipher. The following presidents 
and leaders were present: William 
Bender, Rachael Holdcraft, Lucie 
Cook, Carl Ehrhart, Anna Evans, 
Paul Horn, Lillian Leisey, Evelyn 
Miller, Jack Moller, Richard Moody, 
Louise Saylor, William Scherfel, 
Jeanne Schock, and Chris Walk. 

After discussing the needs for a 
body which will replace the student 
faculty committee, plans were mad 3 
for the permanent organization of 
this council. It was agreed that one 
representative of each society, chosen 
by the society, as it sees fit, along 
with several faculty members, should 
compose the personnel of the commit- 
tee. As this is the first year of the 
organization, this same committee 
will act also as a constitutional staff. 

The need for rapid organization 
was stressed by the Dean, as the ar- 
rangement of the social calendar for 
the second semester, which is one of 
the important duties delegated to this 
group, has to be done in the near fu- 

Paul Horn, President of the Y. M. 
C. A., was chosen to act as temporary 
chairman until the organization of 
the new council has been effected. 

Meeting for a second time yesterday 
afternoon the temporary committee 
decided to recommend that the respec- 
tive organizations select their presi- 
dents or leaders to form the perma- 
nent council, because of their greater 
intimacy with their own organiza- 
tion's affairs. 

Ursinus Noses Out 
L V. In Tight Game 

By virtue of its ability to make 
good on its charity tosses, Ursinus 
handed Lebanon Valley its third 
straight league defeat by a score of 
45-41 at Collegeville on Tuesday ev- 
ening. The Blue and White countered 
on 7 of its 17 free throws to Ursinus' 
13 out of 18. The Valley, however, 
outscored the Ursinus aggregation in 
goals from afield, dropping 17 while 
Ursinus rung up 16. 

Rebounding from its close defeat 
at the hands of the Bucknell passers, 
the Dutchmen were given more than 
an outside chance to beat the highly 
touted cagers of Collegeville. How- 
ever, the home team started strongly 
in the first quarter and had rolled up 
a lead that amounted to 13-7 by the 
close of the period. In the second 
quarter Mease and Schillo led the Val- 
ley in outscoring its opponents 19-18 
to trail Ursinus 31-26 as the gun 
sounded ending the half. A number 
of personal fouls were called on the 
Dutchmen by the officials resulting 
from the close guarding by the Valley 
in these periods.

<J id bits 

By Ira Asa pit 
Evenin' folks. Mind if I step in ? 
You don't recognize me? Perhaps ail 
explanation is in order. You see stud- 
ents — our good friend Ira has shifted 
the job upon one of his many pals, for 
at this stage of the game Ira I is up 
to his neck in work (who isn't?) I'm 
sure all of you will well understand 
the predicament, so sorta bear with 
me as we review the weekly dirt. 

Clio has come and Clio has gone 
leaving behind many fond memories. 
Ira II feels sure that all who attended 
will join in heaping laurels upon a so- 
ciety deserving of much praise for a 
grand evening. The band was grand, 
the ballroom fine and the air of 
friendship and goodwill praiseworthy. 
Here's to more society dances to 
match that one. 

-.-and bouquets 

One of the striking things connect- 
ed with the weekly problem of filling 
the second page of LA VIE is the 
way in which editorial fingers seem 
to fit naturally around bricks. 

It isn't that an editor by virtue of 
his position possesses hands of an un- 
usual shape or construction. There 
just seems to be an innate urge that 
makes him want to pick up paving 
blocks and hurl them far and wide, 
often with little sense of direction 
but always with mighty vehemence. 

A brickyard produces in him a nos- 
talgia equalled only by that of a fresh- 
man who has just returned to school 
after his first weekend at home. Even 
after he has retired from his editor- 
ship a brick is not just a brick to him. 
It is more than a mere paving-stone 
or a small piece of a wall. It is an 
emblem and a symbol of that funda- 
mental American principle, the free- 
dom of the press. Dictators and bricks 
cannot exist simultaneously, and when 
Hitlers sweep themselves to power the 
brick-throwing apparatuses are liqui- 
dated first of all. 

However, in spite of an editor's na- 
tural proclivities, he sometimes is 
forced to restrain himself and gently 
toss bouquets instead. There may be 
several reasons for this phenomenon. 
Perhaps he may not be able to find 
any bricks. However, that is scarcely 
possible. A newspaper editor who finds 
himself speechless is not a newspaper 
editor. Then, there could be a lack of 
passable targets, but that is also high- 
ly improbable, not with the world in 
its present state of imperfection. 
There is still another solution. Per- 
haps a situation may exist in which 
bonquets are quite apropos, nay, even 

It is with no little sense of pride^ 
diluted of course with the proper 
amount of humble gratitude, that the 
results of last week's editorials are 
recorded. Heading the list was a plea 
for the literary societies to snap out 
of the social doldrums into which they 
slipped after the hunting season. Else- 
where in this issue of LA VIE are 
discussed Philo's plans for an infor- 
mal "pre-exam" dance to be held in 
the gym this Friday night. 

Then, too, in response to another 
editorial plea, the reorganization of 
the Student-Faculty Committee got 
underway in the past week with the 
calling of a meeting of organization 
leaders and the appointment of a 
chairman pro tern to take charge until 
permanent organization can be affect- 
ed. Such a committee promises to be 
very useful in drawing up a social 
calendar for the second semester. 

So, it is with flowers and not Irish 
confetti that these two movements are 
saluted; and in spite of editorial bel- 
ligerence in defense of the sacred 
right to "gripe," the privilege of 
praising is no less enjoyable. 

It seems as though a certain group 
of frosh have caused upperclassmen 
no end of trouble recently. Since the 
lifting of the date rule, a few dating 
males have been spending a goodly 
amount of their spare time decorating 
the furniture of North Hall parlor. 
Upon entering said room a few eve- 
nings ago, a certain blonde senior- 
found all the chairs, tables, and 
couches overflowing with humanity. 
Each couple was wrapped up so deep- 
ly in "conversation" that they failed 
to notice the entry (Who said class 
standing applies in a case like this 
anyway) Consequently, the only alter- 
native was utilized, and the late ar- 
rivals found a nice cozy corner on the 

To date very little mention on cam- 
pus has been made of budding group 
of aviators. Every one has noticed 
Bentzel "zooming" about, doing the 
physically impossible with his hands 
but that doesn't reach the point Ira 
seeks. It seems that these P. B.'s 
(John Lynch for more details of this 
organization) receive a pair of small 
gold wings upon their first 
solo hop. Ten men are enrolled in the 
course but Dotty S. seems to ba pos- 
sessor of a pair. If the wings have 
already reached the women, what of 
Jane Smith and a number of other 
cute young things ? Siippm' Jane 

Being a guest writer, ira the Les- 
ser wonders how "the £>oss'' happened 
to miss noticing that our ardent lov- 
er, Florian Cassady and Evelyn seem 
to be hitting it up at a merry pace. 
Then too, a number of gentlemen nave 
taken up residences in JSouth Hall — 
namely Baldwin, Wright, Bentzel, 
George, Flook, Stouffer, Ness, etc. 
West Hall also holds its own with 
Bryce and Rodes snagging the hon- 
ors. Too bad East Hall had to go 
masculine this year. At least there 
would have been more furniture for 
usuage before buying that expensive 
(expansive — .time element) coke in 
the evenings. 

Much comment has been passed up- 
on the keyboard tickling of one Aoe 
Morrison. His one-man jam sessions 
before and after supper have become 
something to look forward to in the 

Well chilluns — reports are due to 
Drs. Stine and Stokes so we shove off 
to another realm. So long, and may 
we meet again in the neah, neah, fu

Quite a pile of new books have j u 
come in, an unusually readable assort 
ment. They run largely to biugiap},. 
but don't let that scare you away fj' 
in this day and age biographies ai , 
as interesting as fiction. 

An American Artist's Story u 
George Biddle (one of the Philadg] 
phia Biddies) , is a fascinating book 
Biddle's description of his childhood 
is amusing, at times hilarious. 

Ida M. Tarbell writes an autobiog 
raphy called All In the Day's Worl- 
She gained fame as a biographer a " 
good one, and her autobigraphy j g , 
masterful piece of work. 

Free Artist, by Catherine Drink er 
Bowen, is the story of Anton Ruben- 
stein and his brother. Music students 
take notice. 

There is also the autobiography f 
Billy Phelps. I think I need say no 
more about that. 

For those who like their history 
novelized, Francis Hackett has writ- 
ten Queen Anne Boleyn. It rates. 

Even hear of the Molly Maguires.

W. D. S. C. 

By a W. D. S. 

On Monday afternoon several fresh- 
man girls changed the D. S. R. int • 
a gymnasium. Mary Ellen Klopp and 
Kathryn Jane Sherk did a specialty 
of Indian wrestling while Ruth Krei- 
der and Mary Johns helped churn 
butter and turn somersaults. Then 
they became aesthetic and started to 
dance. However, "The Old Gray 
Mare" and "Your Old Gray Bonnet" 
as rendered by Ruthie, Betty Enier- 
ick and Lela Lopes weren't helpful 
in maintaining the mood and they 
were soon attempting a square dance. 

The girls of the D. S. R. tried their 
best to cause excitement the other 
day. Had anyone looked in the win- 
dow, they would have sworn the place 
was on fire. Information about match 
tricks, old and new, can be obtained 
from any of the girls.

c ;«<r the season with a league 
e especially one with F. & M., is 
' anl ! our opinion, an excellent pol- 
[*if the team had had a few more 
'actices and at least one game with 
Imc opponent, we feel sure that they 
" aid have performed more creditably 
"°ilieir initial conference contest. As 
" t |, e y opened with a fast offense 
Td gradually slowed down while the 
Dip jomats gained confidence as the 
Binut es swiftly passed. Especially 
noteworthy features of the game were 
the exploits of the two F. & M. for- 
wards, Leykamm and Wagner. 

The Bucknell game proved more in- 
teresting as far as local fans are con- 
cerned, for even though the Blue and 
White quintet was again defeated 
they looked much better than in their 
first contest. Even as late as the 
middle of the fourth period the game 
was deadlocked at 28 all and it was 
not until Kiick sank a foul in the last 
half minute that the outcome of the 
contest was certain. Ralph Mease had 
his shots working as he sank eigh 
teen points during the game. 

As we look over the records of the 
other teams in the league thus far we 
find that F. and M., besides trouncing 
Lebanon Valley, has outpointed Muh- 
lenburg and Albright to lead the pa 
rade. Bucknell on the night follow 
H the Valley contest defeated Al

points and it was again George Kiick

Dutchmen Halted 
By Bucknell Five 
In Thrilling Game 

In celebrating its debut into the 
Eastern Pennsylvania Collegiate Bas- 
ketball League, Bucknell, stacking up 
against a hard scrapping Lebanon 
Valley five, defeated the Dutchmen by 
a :!7-34 score on the Bison's court last 
Friday night. 

With Ralph Mease leading the at- 
tack, the Blue and White threw a def- 
inite scare into the vetei'an Bucknell 
quintet, but lack of reserves took its 
toll from the Dutchmen who showed 
that they are rounding into excellent 

Mease and Artz broke away fast 
from their Goliathan guards and 
swished the cords fo r four points be- 
fore the Bisons realized that a game 
was being played. Snyder, Bucknell's 
high scoring guard, quickly remedied 
the situation as he tallied three field 
goals to put the Lewisburg boys back 
in the ball game. With Mease tally- 
ing six points the score at quarter 
read 8-8. 

Fahringer replaced Buzas, who was 
unable to stop the hot-handed Mease 
in the second period. He immediate- 
ly tossed two side court shots through 
the loop that put Bucknell into the 
lead, an advantage that they main- 
tained throughout the remainder of 
the tussle. With Kiick and Snyder 
throwing in some shots, Bucknell went 
on a spree to earn a 20-18 lead at the 

Holding down six-foot-four Long- 
aker, Schillo and Kubisen stole the 
show in the third stanza, as they pre- 
vented the stilted giant from reaching 
into the basket with the ball through- 
out the second half, a feat never ac- 
complished to date. The scoring was 
slow and Bucknell held a 28-24 lead at 
the end of the quarter. 

While the guards held Bucknell 
scoreless for five minutes of the final 
stanza, Artz and Mease broke away 
to tally and tie the score at 28 all 
with five minutes left to play. The 
Valley, however, was unable to pass 
the Bisons who racked up nine points 
to six for the Valley. Schillo, with 
two minutes left to play, tossed in his 
only attempted shot to bring the Blue 
and White to within three points of 
Bucknell, who assumed possession of 
the ball and froze it for the rest of 
the game with a fine exhibition of 
clever ball handling. 

Lebanon Valley showed that they 
can not be counted out, despite their 
loss and should come through with a 
win. Mease and Artz led the scor- 
ing with 18 and 7 points respectively 
Ed Schillo, although scoring only two 
counters, turned in an excellent defen 
sive and floor game, feeding the for 
wards on several occasions with clev 
er passes. 

Ursinus Noses Out 
L. V. In Tight Game 

(Continued from Page 1) 

Taking the floor in the third period, 
Ursinus continued its scoring pace 
and increased its lead to 42-33 by the 
close of this canto. Chern and Keehn, 
who had broken loose for a number of 
sleeper shots in the previous periods, 
were held pretty well in check during 
this period. Ursinus relaxed during 
the last session and coasted on the 
advantage it had gained in the earlier 
part of the game and consequently 
chalked up only three points for its 
efforts for L. V.'s eight. Both Chern 
and Keehn, high scorers for Ursinus 
for the evening, were closely watched 
during this quarter and were unable 
to get in position to drop any of their 
net set shots. 

Mease, Shillo, and Kubisen tallied 
most of the points garnered by the 
Valleyites while Staley bore the brunt 
of the attack along with Youse who 
showed up well in his first real oppor- 
tunity under fire. The team as a whole 
put up a good fight and played as 
well as in the contest with Bucknell, 
but the inability to counter on numer- 
ous occasions when a score seemed 
certain, spelled defeat for the Blue 
and White.

In a very well played contest, the 
defending champions, the Junior class, 
defeated the Seniors on Tuesday 
evening. With the starting four play-

Frosh Eke Out Win 
Over Sophs, 36-35 

The Frosh-Soph game of last 
Thursday night inaugurated the 1940 
Dormitory Interclass Basketball 
League. The game was very roughly 
played and was closely contested 
throughout. At the end of the regu- 
lation four periods the two squads 
were deadlocked at 35 points each. 
In the extra period of two minutes 
the Frosh scored one foul shot at- 
tempt to win the contest. 

Bob Weiler was the star for the 
losers as far as scoring goes since 
he accounted for eighteen markers. 
For the Frosh no individual star can 
be cited as the Bita Pi fraternity 
took over with Kozlosky, Tavaloro 
and Olexy the representatives.

Cheeseburger Sandwich 

A cup of Hot Chocolate 





By Digitus 
Your reporter lias sat back and 
watched with amusement all the poor 
"devils" who have been accused of my 
position. The trail is hot for some 
fellows; but as tor the true perpetra- 
tor, the path is unblazed. .Remember, 
he who hunts Digitus is subjecting- 
himself and his affairs to the public 

On a certain occasion, Nate Kantor, 
seeking to bring Bob Breen's name in 
this respective column, dashed up to 
him and, in a rather loud voice, con- 
gratulated him for a formal debut with 
a member of the fairer sex. Bob look- 
ed at the creature who loudly aired 
the supposed "scoop" and in a quiet 
but sarcastic manner replied, "Wake 
up! Kantor, you are six years behind 
time." We know who 'landed up be- 
hind the eight-ball" in that case. 

It appears as though Ralph Lloyd 
is receiving competition at the hands 
of the Valley's airmen. His little girl 
friend drives frequently to the airport 
where she is not only fascinated by 
the roar of motors, but by a group of 
likeable and entertaining collegiate 
flying students. Now for the worried 
Lloyd, there are but two courses to 
follow; either look for a new girl or 
pull one over on your fellow aviators 
and "learn at home the best way to fly 
in ten easy lessons. Send no money 
just write for a free booklet; and you 
too can become the life of the party.' 

Poor "Stew" Shapiro! The mad bio 
psycnologist has his hands filled with 
a fatal problem. In his experiments 
with guinea-pigs, he has known prac 
ticaily nothing but death. Every other 
day, Stew would approach the cage of 
squeaking rodents only to find anoth 
er thirty-five cents' worth for the mor 
gue. On one occasion, he found a dead 
pig whose head had been severed by a 
brother. Since this pig was with the 
group that were drinking alcohol, even 
we can explain the death. Dead or 
not, Stew carries on with the fight of 
Pasteur and with money of his own. 

Christine Kreider, the ' petite" mu- 
sician of the "Conserve," has certain- 
ly been enjoying the company of ihe 
"Klean Kut Kid from Kornwall." Now 
we didn't say there were any objec- 
tions Harold. But aren't you a little 
ahead of spring. 

Franklin Patschke, a pudgy Fresh- 
man jokes, was so impressed with his 
own subtle humor that he decided to 
write it in order to make it more last- 
ing. When he showed it to several 
upper-classmen, they read several 
lines, and then threw it on the floor 
where it was blackened beneath dirty 
shoes. A typical example of his mas- 
terpiece: "What color is a hiccup?" 
Answer, "Burple." Before the days of 
the Constitution, the author of such 
humor would have received a "super 
hot seat" as the students indicated 
their burning appreciation. 

No man could love the government 
better than Frank Zimmerman. Frank 
is a German tutor, payed by the gov- 
ernment under the title of N. Y. A. 
Now it so happens that the little pu- 
pil he is instructing in the alien lan- 
guage is none other than Ellen Rup- 
persberger. Knowing the ability with 
which both of these young people can 
talk, one can expect a lot of Ger- 
man to be covered. 

Zwally Delphian Head 

Miss Kathryn M. Zwally, a sen- 
ior in the college department, was 
recently elected second semester 
President of Delphian Literary So- 
ciety at a special meeting called 
for that purpose. Other officers 
will be chosen at a later date. 

Green Blotter Meets 

Dr. and Mrs. Struble had the Green 
Blotter Club at their home for the 
January meeting on Wednesday, the 

The club's literary efforts of the 
evening were centered around the 
writing of the play upon which the 
entire club is working in collabora- 
tion. Before the evening's business 
was begun Prof. Carmean took an in- 
formal group picture of the members, 
Dr. and Mrs. Struble, and the club's 
tiniest ink spot, Trygve Struble. 

Taylor Scores Hit 
With Large Crowd 

Myron Taylor, tenor and voice in- 
structor at Lebanon Valley College, 
was acclaimed by the students and 
public as a superb artist. Singing to 
a record audience on Monday night 
in Engle Hall, this well known opera 
and concert tenor, accompanied by his 
charming wife, Ruth Harrison Taylor, 
presented a varied and interesting 

It would be a difficult task to choose 
the highlights of the program, for he 
seemed to live and feel every song 
he sang. His winning stage presence, 
his change of moods, his superb inter- 
pretation, his knowledge of German 
lieder, and his arias from operatic 
roles all combined to make this first 
faculty recital an evening of unsur- 
passed musical enjoyment for every-

Why Cops Die Young 

by John "Doc" Bennett 
(Continued from last week) 
The fat man followed me and star- 
ing at me with a worried look on his 
face he asked "Are you all right?" 

This angered me. I hit him, he hit 
me, and then we both calmed down. 

"Now look, Bud," he said, "nobody 
hits Joe McGilligan and gets away 
with it, but I'll let you go this time. 
Let's go up to my house and we'll have 

On the way over to Joe's house, I 
explained my troubles to his amuse- 

"So you got kicked off the police 
force because you didn't catch this 
Merk fellow, eh? And your babe gave 
you back to the Indians, eh? By God, 
that's funny!" 

"There's a fellow by the name of 
Krem boards next to my home. Tony 

"Spell Krem backwards." 
I did and looked at him. 

"You're brighter than I thought

to his house a little while ago. Then 

he went out with her in a limousine." 

' Where do you live?" 

"On this street next to the corner 

"Mr. McGilligan," I started. 

"Joe," he corrected me. 

"Joe, then," I said, then went on, 
"I'll come back later on for that 

"Where are you going?" 

"After Merk." 

"I'm with you," he said. "Just a 
minute and I'll get my car." 

With that he went into the garage. 
I heard the car start and a green se- 
dan appeared with Joe at the wheel. 
He told me to get in. I did. 

"Where to?" 

"To the high school." 

'Where's that?" 

"Three blocks down and to the 

We were in front of the high school

"Well, where do we go from here?" 
That was all, for the sky came down 
on my head and I went out. 


Slowly I came to. My head felt as 
if a devil was "jitterbugging" in my 
cranial cavity. I had all the symp- 

toms of a hangover except for that 
sour taste in the mouth following a 
lig night. 

1 looked around the room which I 
recognized in a bleary-eyed as McGil- 
ligan's room. I moaned. 

"Finally decide to get up, Dunni- 
gan?" someone asked. It was McGil- 

"No," I said, "I'm going to sleep 
twenty years like Rip Van Winkle." 

McGilligan laughed. 

"I don't blame you for being sour. 
If you weren't out like a batter with 
three strikes on him., I could have ex- 


"I'm going to help you catch this 
such and such and get your girl back."

McGilligan chuckled. 

"Do as I say and you've got him." 

I got up unsteadily, holding my 
head (I was still a little dizzy) and

Result Of Tryouts 
f or Kalo-Delphian 
p| a y Announced 

Two Societies To Present 
Barry's "The Youngest "/ 
Struble, Billet To Direct 

The cast 
play, "The 

for the Kalo-Delphian 
Youngest" by Sidney 
nj which will be given on March 
eighth was selected on Monday by 
Dv . Struble and Mrs. Paul Billett. 
They are the following: 
Muff— Louise Boger. 
Mrs. Winslow — Martha Davies. 
Augusta — Barbara Bowman. 
Nancy— Carolyn Kissinger. 
Richard— John Bennett. 
Oliver— Irving Oberholtzer. 
Alan— Richard Baldwin. 
Mark— Frank Shenk. 
Katie— Mary Grace Light. 
The play, a three act comedy, has 
a new twist to the Cinderella theme 
by centering around the male lead. Dr. 
Struble will be assisted in directing 
the play by Mrs. Billett, an alumna 
of Lebanon Valley. 

In place of some wicked step-sisters 
there is a whole family of realistic, 
pn-and-needle-minded mercenaries to 
try to down the literarily bent "ba- 
by" who always seems to get the worst 
of the bargain. When the fairy god- 
mother, a chic, engaging young miss, 
enters the scene in time for the 
Fourth of July celebration, not fire- 
works, but a revolution is started by 
the down-trodden minority. The 
"Youngest" hears the clock strike 
twelve when he discovers the intrigue 
^ he is a new man and the remain - 
,,er of the events he handles in his 
own way.

Recruits To Conduct 

6 Deputations OnSunday 

Because of the observance of Edu- 
cation Day in United Brethren church- 
es this coming Sunday, February 11, 
numerous churches have called upon 
Life Work Recruits to conduct one 
or more services for them. Six depu- 
tations will go to various churches, 
five on Sunday and one on Saturday 
evening. The latter will conduct a ser- 
vice at the St. Thomas United Breth- 
ren Church on the Lemasters charge. 
Paul Horn will be the speaker, Carl 
Ehrhart and John Ness will assist in 
the service, and Dennis Geesey, ac- 
companied by Ruth Hershey, will sup- 
ply special music. 

Another group will visit the Lykens 
United Brethren Church Sunday 
morning and the Millersburg United 
Brethren Church Sunday evening. 
Florian Cassady will speak at both 
of these services. Haven Kessel and 
Martha Davies will teach the Adult 
and Young People's Division, respec- 
tively, in Sunday School and will as- 
sist in church. Robert Weiler is the 
special soloist and his accompanist 
will be Margaret Boyd.

Shay Names Committees 
For Annual Soph Dance 

The election of officers for the sec- 
ond semester and plans for their an- 
nual dance formed the items of busi- 
ness for a meeting of the sophomore 
class, held Monday afternoon. Ralph 
Shay was elected president to succeed 
Ralph Mease. Other officers are as 
follows: Robert Dresel, vice president; 
Ruth Heminway, secretary. Robert 
Guinivan retains his position as treas- 

Tentative plans for the annual Soph 
Hop were discussed and committees 
were appointed for the affair. The 
commit: ees are: Tickets, Robert Sarge, 
Ralph Mease, Robert Weiler, Martha 
Davies, Marie Peters and Eleanor 
Holbrook; Orchestra, Robert Bieber, 
Donald Brensinger, Helen Sechrist, 
and June Hollinger; Chaperones, 
Frank Zimmerman, Robert Ham- 
bright, Mary Louise Clark, and Jane 
Stabley; Decorations, Donald Glen, 
Jack Dobbs, Louise Boger and Virgin- 
ia Goodman. The person named first 
in each instance will serve as chair- 
man of the committee. 

At the meeting held yesterday it 
was finally decided to hold the dance 
either immediately before the Easter 
vacation or soon after the return. 

The committee has gotten in touch 
with at least four orchestras, but no 
definite selection has been made. It 
is very probable that the Hop will be 
held in the Annville High School gym- 
nasium on a Friday evening. 

Philo Head 

. . . elected by Philos as president of 
their society for the second semester. 

Lynch Elected Head 
01 Philo Society 

In an election held at the end of 
last semester Philos named John 
Lynch to head the literary society for 
the second semester. Elected to serve 
with Lynch as officers were: Robert 
Hackman, vice president; Donald 
Haverstick, secretary; Robert Ham- 
bright, treasurer; Donald Glen, 
chairman of the executive committee; 
and George Munsell, Richard Beckner 
and Richard Owen, sergeants-at-arms. 

The newly-elected president suc- 
ceeds William Bender in that office. 
He has been active in Philo affairs 
since he joined the society in his 
freshman year, having served as ser- 
geant-at-arms and taken part in the 
society's annual play his sophomore 
year. This past semester he has ser- 
ved on numerous committees in the 
carrying out of the social program put 
on by Philo. 

Lynch announced soon after his 
election that his first policy as presi- 
dent would be an attempt at restora- 
tion, to a certain extent, of the former 
literary activities of the society. This 
step will be initiated in the near fu- 
ture when the International Relations 
Club will hold its regular monthly 
meetings in Philo Hall. 

Women Students Hold 
Heart Sister Week 

Heart Sister week with all its little 
acts of kindness and thoughtfulness 
is once ajrain being observed by the 
women students of the college. It be- 
gan Monday, February 5, and will 
come to a close with a tea in each dor- 
mitory on Sunday evening, February 
11, at 10 o'clock. Jane Ehrhart, who 
is general chairman for all the ar- 
rangements of the week, has charge 
of the tea in North Hall. It will take 
the form of an informal party with 
the program consisting of a flute solo 
by Catherine Coleman and a vocal 
solo by Mary Elizabeth Spangler.

Scorers With 16 And 14/

Although the battle of Gettysburg 
was fought in the days of the Civil 
War, its memory must still live with 
the battlefield inhabitants, as was evi- 
denced last Saturday night, when the 
Dutchmen from Lebanon Valley shoul- 
dered their muskets and shot the Bul- 
lets from Gettysburg through the 
hoops to emerge a 39-34 victor. 

The faithful followers of "der poys" 
were treated to a fine exhibition of 
clever floor work and fancy shooting. 
A short intermission was allowed 10 
allow the enthusiasm of both teams to 
be slightly deflated in a short bout of 
pugilistic tactics, that brought the 
spectators out of their seats and onto 
the floor. 

The fisticuffs were featured in the 
(Mru quartex when che Valley was on 
a scoring spree. Schillo became en- 
tangled in a melee under the G-burg

Old-Ti me Hoedown 
To Be Sponsored 
By W.A.A. Tonight 

This evening the W. A. A. Cabinet 
will sponsor an old-fashioned square 
dance which will be held in the Alum- 
ni Gymnasium at 8 o'clock. Old time 
fiddlers and caller from Shippensburg 
have been secured. The price is ten 
cents per person. 

Jane Stabley and Margaret Bord- 
well are in charge of the posters and 
tickets which may be bought at the 
door or from any member of the W. 
A. A. Cabinet. This is the first time 
such a dance has been sponsored on 
the campus of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege. If this is successful, as we 
hope it is, there will be more of such 
dances. Let's forget we live in 1940, 
go back a few years to the days of our 
grandfathers and grandmothers, and 
have a royal good time at this old- 
time jamboree. 


Several sets of yearbook proofs 
have not yet been returned. It is 
very important that they be hand- 
ed in immediately to either John 
Dressier or Charles Beittel, or that 
they be placed in the Quittapahilla 
box in the registrar's office. If any 
proofs are unreturned by Monday, 
February 12, the best picture, in 
the judgment of the photographer, 
will be placed in the yearbook. At- 
tention is also called to the fact 
that many of the sitting fees have 
not been paid. Payment should be 
made at once.

.... Resolutions 

We have reached the time of the 
school year when every student sin- 
cerely resolves to do more day-by-day 
studying in order to avoid excessive 
eye-strain and high electric light bills 
at examination time. It is believed 
that the upperclassmen wish the 
freshmen more perseverance in deal- 
ing with this noble decision than they 

Keeping up-to-date with assign- 
ments is profitable. Not only does it 
save physically during those trying 
examination days in January and 
May, but it is a great aid in obtain- 
ing what the seniors hope will carry 
with them from graduation — a certain 
amount of education and learning. 
Those who have the energy and de- 
termination to do a great amount of 
cramming the day before a siege can 
make good grades — but do they re- 
member what they studied? Anyone 
acquainted with the psychology of 
study knows that retention is low un- 
der such circumstances. Success in 
life does not depend on the grades 
made in college, but on the learning 
really acquired. 

If you are hesitant in believing that 
regular studying helps, experiment 
for yourselves. How many students 
find that when they are forced to 
study for weekly quizzes, the review- 
ing for examinations is quite simpli- 
fied. When the professor, sometimes 
due to the high enrollment depends 
upon his students for studying as- 
signments without the expectancy of 
occasional tests, they are apt to go 
through the course passively. 

Don't think that the editorial staff 
doesn't do any cramming — they too 
have helped burn excessive quantities 
of midnight oil and intend to do so in 
June. But still .... 

It seems as though "griping" is 
slowly becoming a habit with most 
students. The question of the fair- 
ness of marks pops up every examin- 
ation period. How many hold out for 
better grades when they know that 
they didn't employ all their ability? 
Perhaps if those students did more 
work they would be better pleased 
with the results. Of course, in many 
minds this idea is revolutionary in- 
deed, but so be it. It's human nature 
to shift the blame to someone else's 
shoulders. But let's try to face the 
facts — nine chances out of ten we are 
at fault as students, and this may be 
an underestimate. Let's stop com- 
plaining about the past semester's 
marks and try to do better the next 

To those whose marks could have 
been better the editorial staff extends 
condolences and a wish for greater 
success the next time. To those who 
did their best is offered the encour- 
agement to keep up the good work.

Lebanon Valley Alumnus 
Publishes Poetry Volume 

by Paul Stouffer 
One of the most interesting and 
stimulating textbooks that has come 
to our attention is Poetry and its 
Forms by Mason Long, Professor of 
English Literature at Pennsylvania 
State College and an alumnus of 
Lebanon Valley College. 

Poetry and its Forms is an admir- 
able textbook, pleasing, authoritative, 
learned, but not dry or dogmatic. In 
his book Professor Long has as his 
principal objective "a stimulation of 
the reader's feeling and imagination 
and an awakening within him of a 
desire to read poetry after the per 
sonality of the teacher has been with- 
drawn." Professor Long, therefore, 
stresses the poetry itself rather than 
the history of the man who wrote the 
poetry. In this way the emphasis is 
placed "upon poetry as a thing to be 
enjoyed for what it says and the way 
it says it" rather than poetry as a 
mirror of the life and times of some 

His text does not adhere to the 
standard rule of the historical survey 
of poetry, but instead concerns itself 
with the thought and structure of the 
poetry itself. This plan seems to us 
to be an excellent innovation, for 
rather than having to worry about 
the life and times of men we can get 
right down to the poetry and study 
it for what it is and also for the ef- 
fect it has on us. 

The book is divided into fifteen dif- 
ferent parts and each part deals with 
one form of verse. There is a brief 
history of the form given and then 
the general characteristics of the 
form. After that many striking ex- 
amples of the form are given and dis- 
cussed with regard to their typical 
features and to their appeal as pieces 
of literary art and mirrors of experi- 
ence. At the close of each period 
there are several pages of English 
and American poems in that particu- 
lar form listed. 

In his arrangement and discussions 
the author does not hurriedly skip 
over the American works as many 
authors do but treats both English 
and American works with the same 
degree of impartiality. Also many 
poems that are generally unfamiliar 
to the average student are given, 
which is a noteworthy point. Instead 
of having to always study the same 
hackneyed works, in this book the stu- 
dent is treated to many works that 
have heretofore been unexplored by 
most college students. 

This book would be excellent for 
use as a textbook in freshmen or 
sophmore English in any college. It 
might prove advisable to try it here 
on our campus. We are sure that it 
would bring about a generally better 
attitude towards the study of poetry.

Second semester! And the top of the 
class to you! and you! and you! Since 
Ira is one of the common rabble 
which gets only a worm's-eye-view of 
the top of the class, he can not offer 
much in the way of jubilation; but 
nevertheless, deah shining lights, here 
are his heartiest Congrats and bou- 

discriminant dillying and dallying to 
good account during the last two 
weeks of sweat, swelter and struggle. 
Yes, yes, Bob Spangler's dates cer- 
tainly do pay continuous dividends. 
Will two example* be enough? The 
night before the transportation exam 
the star of all star Stokettes received 
no less than three telephone calls that 
developed into extended conversations, 
running something like this: "Well 
Louise, what is the answer to question 
1096583?" Follows answer: "Rattle, 
rattle, rattle." And so far into the 
night. If you want to know more 
about how to win friends and pass

running off with the campus' latest 
innovation, to wit, Kenny Baker, who 
is making a return engagement to 
these yar stamping grounds. To 
those of you who are wondering how 
even such a mow-em-downer as Rae 
could make so much hay so quickly, 
rumor has it that they were old old 
friends at the mutual alma mammy, 
Shenandoah. Question of the week: Is 
Butch a myth or just not missed? 


In the midst of the gate-giving- 
away-game we find Louise and Megs, 
Flo and ye whip-lashing ed., and (here 
is a long shot) probably Don and 
Thelma. The second lil item is said 
to be final, but from the great wail- 
ing and gnashing of teeth emitted 
from North Hall Monday night, 
Louise might be willing to reconsider, 

May Ira suggest that some conviv- 
al soul throw a little dedication for 
Dick, who henceforth will bear the 
proud title of THE PRETTIEST BOY 
IN SCHOOL. Ex-headwaiter Kauff- 
man is not undeserving of his high 
position, however, for he meticulously 
combed his curly locks before the Y 
Room mirror before making those din-

Speaking of grades, it was more 
than interesting to note how a certain 
lady-killer turned a semester of in- 

There reaches Ira's ear much com- 
plaint and invective due to the cur- 
tailing of athletic activities in North

has inaugurated the supervised play

To anyone who is interested in In- 
ternational Relations, the following 
books, which have been added to the 
library will prove most beneficial. 
These books have been sent to the In- 
ternational Relations Club by the Car- 
negie Endowment for International 

ROW — Eduard Benes, Former Pres- 
ident of Czechoslovakia. 
Dr. Benes in this most interesting 
book gives a series of lectures on the 
history and future of democracy. He 
states with exceptional clarity the 
case for a democratic philosophy of 
government and for the institutions 
common to his land and ours. At the 
conclusion of his discussion he pre- 
dicts the eventual victory of democ- 
racy. In light of the author's own 
life as President of Czechoslovakia 
and President of the League Assem- 
bly at Geneva, this book is especially 
important and enlightening. 

"The present crisis in Europe and 
in the world is the continuation of the 
eternal fight for a better justice, for 
a better life, for a better political, na- 
tional, cultural, economic and social 
existence for the greatest number of 
individuals in the greatest number of 
countries in the world; the fight for 
a peaceful settlement of the conflict- 
ing interests; the fight for a longer 
period of peace and for better forms 
of collaboration between the individ- 
uals in the particular nation and be- 
tween the nations and states in the 
world. In a word, it is the continua- 
tion of the fight for a better society, 
That is the ideal of democracy." 
WORLD— Edited by Guy Stanton 

Fourteen scholars, American and 
European, under the guidance of Guy 
Stanton Ford, President of the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota, have cooperated 
to write this book for the purpose of 
providing a cool and dispassionate 
survey of dictatorship from the his- 
torical angle. The rise of modern 
dictatorship is discussed as well as the 
form it takes in various countries. The 
most interesting feature of the book 
is a table on the Chronology of Dicta- 
torship— 1917-1939. 

"Democracy seems to me to live less 
by what it believes in than by what it 
doubts, less by its confidence in the 
many than by its doubts of the few."

•"^hT'old cry has ajrain appeared on 

,[, e Lebanon Valley campus: "We 

^\ win this one but we are devel- 

•„<r and we're goinir to win the next 


" This was a very prominent 
tatement on the tongues of every- 
one up u ntil Tuesday night's game 
-vit H Muhlenburg. Sad to say that 
this thought has now disappeared 
from nearly everyone's mind, as we 
now resign ourselves to the fact that 
are sadly destined to a lowly fin- 
ish in the league standings, all due 
lo the fact that our boys are badly 
oll t of condition. 

After the F. & M. game the boys 
never looked bad, even in defeat, un- 
J Tuesday night. Bucknell, Ursinus 
and Gettysburg were able to eke out 
three, four and two point victories 
respectively. In all three of these 
games the Dutchmen could have won 
with only one or two less bad breaks, 
especially in the first Gettysburg 
game as Simon and Trimmer sank 
uncanny field goals in the last twen- 
ty seconds. 

This trio of defeats was followed by 
an exciting over-time two-point vic- 
tory over Dickinson's Red Devils to 
give the Valleyites their first victory 
in five starts. Then came the crown- 
ing success of the second Gettysburg 
contest as the Intrieri-men got the 
breaks they were deprived of in the 
four previous league games. Schillo 
and Mease combined to score thirty of 
the team's thirty -nine points while 
Kubisen, Youse and Staley played ex- 
cellent defensive games. 

The Muhlenburg Mules proved to be 
too well coached and much too fast for 
the Valley five. Coach Julian knew 
what he was doing when he asked for 
Playing of the game in halves rather 
than quarters as our boys tired rapid- 
ly- The seemingly ever-present Bus- 
by, Schappell and Diamond trio again 
led the Julianites to their first vic- 
tory over the Blue and White since 
F eb. 27, 1937. The game was roughly 
Played as evidenced by the fact that 
five men were ejected from the con- 
test in the short space of four minutes 
v 'a the personal foul route.

Valley Drops 
League Contest 
To Muhlenberg 

Mules' Shots Click As 
Dutchmen Go Down, 52-39 

Showing little of the form that they 
displayed against Gettysburg, the 
Lebanon Valley quintet suffered a set- 
back at the hands of Muhlenberg, on 
Tuesday night, 52-39. 

Passing erratically and exhibiting 
none of the finesse showed previously, 
the Mules completely threw the 
Dutchmen from the saddle. Mease and 
Schillo tried hard to keep the Valley 
in the ball game, but their shots failed 
to drop. In the meantime Muhlenberg 
hit one of those streaks in which ev- 
erything thrown at the basket falls 
through. The Red and Silver boys 
completely baffled the Valleyites' de- 
fense by their fast cutting and clever 

The game was nip and tuck for the 
entire first half, with neither team 
enjoying a very large advantage at, 
any time. With about five minutes 
to play the Mules began to pull away 
as the Dutchmen showed signs of fa- 
tigue. At the intermission the score 
was 24-19 in the Reds' favor. 

Coming out for the second half, 
Muhlenberg quickly found the range, 
peppering the basket with shots from 
all angles. Fortunately the tosses 
dropped, while Lebanon Valley tried 
vainly to close the gap. In attempting 
to catch up with the Mules, the Valley 
threw their system to the winds and 
played helter-skelter ball that result- 
ed in field goals for the visitors. The 
final horn sounded with the score 
standing 52-39 in favor of Muhlen- 

No fewer than five men went out 
via the personal foul route, giving a 
faint idea of the nature of the game. 
Mease annexed scoring honors with 
14 points, and Schillo was next with 
10. Staley showed up well in the bac"<- 
coui't in battling for a last cause. 

Undeteated Juniors 
Pick Up Third Win 

The undefeated Junior quartet con- 
tinued on the way to their second 
straight championship in the Dorm 
student division of the inter-class bas 
ketball loop as they upset the Sopho- 
more four on Monday evening in a 
high-scoring tilt. The champs under 
the leadership of Bentzel and Grow, 
who scored 18 and 21 points respec- 
tively, had no little trouble in down- 
ing the hard fighting but unlucky 
Sophs by a 55-47 count. 

Bob Weiler again led the second 
year men's offensive drive as he rang 
up twenty-five markers for this year's 
highest total. In three games played 
Barney Bentzel has accounted for fif- 
ty-eight points to lead the league to

Industrial School 
Drops Frosh, 34-14 

The Blue and White freshmen pro- 
vided another farce, more or less, for 
Valley basketball followers when they 
played their most listless game of the 
current season against the Hershey 
Industrial School. It was held on the 
Lebanon High floor on Tuesday even- 
ing and resulted in a 34-14 score. 

The game early gave promise of 
offering plenty of slap-stick. The 
visitors took the lead from the start 
and were never overtaken. Coach 
Frock sent in everything but the 
bench itself in order to present a for- 
midable combination, but without re- 
sults. The half ended with the first 
year men on the short and of a 20-7 

The type of play witnessed in the 
first two periods continued throughout 
the second half. Poor passing, bad 
shooting, poor teamwork, and care- 
less guarding resulted in the undoing 
of the frosh. However, the pay-off 
didn't come until one of the Valley 
men dropped the ball into the H. I. S. 
basket early in the fourth period. For- 
tunately the shot was made after one 
of the Hershey players had missed 
the first of two foul tries and no score 
was recorded. 

Altogether the game provided one 
of the choicest bits of comedy and 
pathos in local sport circles for some 
time. Two or three of the Frockmen 
did show some form, but without co- 
operation nothing could be accom- 
plished. Williams and Rose each 
scored seven points for Hershey, 
while no one of the Valley was out- 

No scoring was done by either team 
in the last quarter and the game end- 
ed at 34-14. 


In the senior class election held 
yesterday a tie vote resulted for the 
office of president. Another class 
meeting will be called next week to 
decide this office. The vice president 
elected is Donald Ludwig and the 
secretary-elect is Carmella Galloppi.

L. V. Men Debaters 
Hold First Debate 

Tuesday evening Lebanon Valley 
matched her brawn against that of 
Muhlenberg College of Allentown and 
lost. Tuesday evening, February 13, 
she matches her brains against those 
of the same institution in a debate to 
be held at Philo Hall, at 8 P. M. on 
the question: Resolved that the Uni- 
ted States government should give 
financial interest to the several states 
in order to provide equal educational 
opportunities for all citizens. 

In this debate L. V. will be repre- 
sented by Paul Horn and Carl Ehr- 
hart who will uphold the negative side. 
Although there will be no decision, 
all are invited to sit in on it. 

The girls debating team, under the 
leadership of Louise Saylor, has not 
been far behind the men, for on Feb- 
ruary 27, they will hold a dual debate 
with Ursinus. On March 11, they will 
hold a dual debate with Gettysburg, 
and during that week also have plan- 
ned debates with Hartwick and West- 
ern • Maryland. Sometime during the 
month of March the girls will travel 
to East Orange N. J. to meet Upsala. 

The girls who remain from last 
year are: Lillian Leisey, Betty Anne 
Rutherford, Dorthea Donough, Floda 
Trout, Louise Saylor, and Mildred 
Cross. Three girls, Marva Gruman, 
Fay Brigham, and Ruth Heminway 
have responded to the invitation for 
all girls who are interested in debat- 
ing. There will be another meeting 
for girls interested, Friday at 1:00 
in Room 18 of the Ad. Building. 

The Isolation Question is the topic 
for the girls debates this year. The 
men will also use this topic, and in 
addition will debate on federal aid to 
education, as well as the guilt for the 
present European war.

basket, and immediately came Hying 
out with a couple Bullets after him. 

It was this same Ed Schillo, team- 
ing up with Mitey Ralph Mease, that 
gave the Valley their first league vic- 
tory this season, throwing the sphere 
through the hoop with incredible ac- 
curacy and frequency. Youse and Sta- 
ley played exceptionally good defen- 
sive ball, while Kubisen took care of 
the famed Stretch Trimmer. The two 
guards maintained a prominent pos- 
sessiveness over the backboard. 

The Valley jumped into a 3-0 lead 
as a result of a foul by Schillo and 
a field goal by Kubisen. By then the 
Bullets found the range and began to 
rifle their sphere through the basket 
to command a 12-7 lead at the end of 
the first period. 

However, in the second stanza, 
Mease began tossing the apple at the 
netted hoop, and immediately threw a 
different light on the picture. Simon 
netted a foul to give G-burg a 13-7 
lead. Mease tossed a field goal, and 
Schillo followed with a foul. Stock 
lang up a deuce, and Schillo 
and Mease each tossed up two 
twin counters. Hamilton and Buyer 
added four tallies to the Bullet cause 
on two fouls and a field goal. Mease 
retaliated with a field goal and foul to 
give the Valley a 21-19 lead at inter- 

The rest period did nothing to dull 
the shooting eyes of the Dutchmen 
forwards, and they continued to rack 
up the points while the back court 
boys held the daunted G-burg offense 
to three lone fouls. 

Going into the last period the Blue 
and White had a 33-22 lead. Trimmer, 
who had been held to a solitary field 
goal for three quarters, cut loose and 
began to fake the tiring Valley de- 
fense, to rack up five field goals, near- 
ly duplicating his feat of the battle- 
field arena. Youse and Kubisen net- 
ted some timely tallies to maintain ?. 
margin that spelled defeat for the

the Y. W. C. A. 

The observation of this tradition 
was moved a week ahead in the case 
of the dormitory students in order to 
include those girls who will be going 
on the Glee Club Tour next week. The 
day-student girls however, have just 
begun their observation of Heart Sis- 
ter week to-day, and their party will 
be held next Thursday afternoon.

(mong American Clergy 

In an extended Chapel period next 
Tuesday morning Lebanon Valley stu- 
■ nts will be given an opportunity to 

* . p r . Frederick F. Shannon, for- 
'2y of Chicago, Illinois. The spe- 
cial speaker is one of the outstanding 
clergymen of America. For many 

ears Dr. Shannon was pastor of 
Central Church, Chicago, in which a 
large number of university students 
m accustomed to worship. 

* ])r. Shannon was educated in 
Webb School of Tennessee and Har- 
vard University. In 1924 he received 
the degree of Doctor of Letters from 
Syracuse University. Lincoln Memo- 
rial University of Tennessee conferred 
upon him the degree of Doctor of 
Laws in 1929. 

At the age of 22 Dr. Shannon was 
ordained as a minister of the Metho- 
dist Episcopal Church, South. His 
first pastorate was served at Logan, 
W. Va. After a brief but successful 
ministry there he was called to Grace 
Inureh, Brooklyn, where ht, minis- 
tered for eight years. From 1912-19 
he filled the pulpit of the Reformed 
Church on Heights, Brooklyn. In Jan- 
uary, 1920, Dr. Shannon was called 
to Central Church, Chicago, where he 
served up to the time of his retire- 
ment a few years ago. 

Since his retirement Dr. Shannon 
has devoted his time to addressing 
college groups and youth gatherings. 
Immediately after his visit to Leba-

Roberts Spends Day 
On Valley Campus 

Dr. Walter N. Roberts, President 
of Bonebrake Theological Seminary, 
Dayton, Ohio, addressed the student 
body during the chapel period on Mon- 
day morningft February 12. 

He expressed the fact that students 
are in college because they believe 
there is something beyond high school. 
People are hopeless when there xs 
nothing ahead. There are social, ra- 
cial, and economic problems for every 
generation to solve. It is'a vague hope 
that at some time there will be a Uni- 
ted States of the World where all 
countries will live in peace and har- 
mony. Economically there is enough 
for every one, but it is not equally 
divided. These problems are so baf- 
fling and tremendous that religion is 
the only force to combat them. Dr. 
Roberts told the students to venture 
into the unknown believing that there 
is something unknown and that there 
is an adequate solution to life's prob- 
lems by the grace of God. 

During the day Dr. Roberts inter- 
viewed ministerial students in North 
Hall parlor. 

At 5:30 in the evening the Life 
Work Recruits held a banquet in the 

(Continued on Page 4, Column 5) 


As a climax to a week full of sur 
prises the day-student girls held a 
Valentine party today in North Hall 
parlor from 3:30 to 5:00. All during 
the last week each girl had a secret 
heart sister for whom she did some- 
thing nice each day. At the party the 
identity of the heart sister was re- 

Ruth Wix played several popular 
pieces on the piano. Mary Mehaffey 
cleverly gave a humorous reading and 
Louise Bowman brought the program 
to a close by rendering piano selec- 
tions. After that the final presents 
were exchanged. 

Refreshments of tea, cookies and 
Valentine candy were served. Anna 
Evans, president and Adele Black, vice 
president, of the Women's Day Stud- 
ent Council, presided at the tea table. 

Officers Elected 
For Reorganized 
Permanent Council 

Student-Faculty Body To 
Arrange Social Calendar 

At a meeting yesterday called by 
Dr. Stonecipher the election of offi- 
cers for the Student-Faculty Council 
was held. Paul Horn, who previous- 
ly served as temporary chairman was 
elected president. Joseph Carr was 
installed vice president and Louise 
Saylor was chosen secretary. 

The council is now permanently or- 
ganized, consisting of one represen- 
tative from each organization on the 
campus as well as several faculty 
members. Those members represent- 
ing the various organizations are: — 
Kalozetean Literary Society, Joseph 
Carr; Philokosmian Literary Society, 
Richard Bell; Delphian Literary So- 
ciety, Kathryn Zwally; Clionian Lit- 
erary Society, Wig and Buckle Club, 
and Women's Athletic Association, 
Louise Saylor; Men's Senate, Jack 
Moller; Women's Student Government 
Association, Jeanne Schock; Men's 
Day Student Congress, Alex Rachow; 
Women's Commuter Council, Anna 
Evans; "L" Club, Chris Walk; Y. W. 
C. A., Evelyn Miller, Y. M. C. A., Paul 
Horn, and La Vie Collegienne, Carl 
Ehrhart and Lucie Cook. The fac- 
ulty members composing the council 
are Professors Carmean, Black and 
Shenk, Dr. Lietzau, Miss Gillespie, 
and Miss Wood. 

In the discussion following the elec- 
tion it was decided that each of the 
respective organizations should turn 
in a program of activities for this se- 
mester so that a complete social cal- 
endar can be arranged. The primary 
purpose involved is that of distribut- 
ing the various student activities 
evenly throughout the remainder of 
the year. In the near future a per- 
manent constitution will be drawn up. 
This council replaces the former Stud- 
ent-Faculty Council which was com- 
posed of the presidents of the four 
student governing bodies, the heads 
of the dormitories, two other faculty 
members, and a boy and a girl from 
each class. 

Delphian Elects Officers 
For Second Semester 

Delphian Literary Society on Mon- 
day, February 12, elected the follow- 
ing officers to serve in their various 
capacities during the second semester 
with Miss Kathryn M. Zwally, who 
was chosen president before the exam- 
ination period: vice-president— Edna 
Rutherford; secretary— Phoebe Gey- 
er; corresponding secretary— Viola 
Snell; critic-^Iane Stabley; and war- 
dens— Kathryn Deibler and Marie 
Peters. The treasurer, Feme Poet, 
will retain her position for the re- 
mainder of the year. 

Miss Rachel Holdcraft, anniversary 
president, stated recently that all 
plans are in the final state of readi- 
ness for the society's dinner-dance to 
be held on the 24th of this month at 
the Hotel Harrisburger. The girls 
who are not attending the dance have 
made arrangements to see the movie 
"Gone With the Wind" in Lebanon 

that night.

tested election. 

Minnick Is Elected 
Anniversary Head 

At a meeting of the Kalozetean Lit- 
erary Society called on Monday by 
President George Munday election of 
the Anniversary President took place. 
Edward Minnick emerged with the

resulted in a tie and the second meet- 
ing was called to have the society 
members vote again. 

The sixty-third anniversary of the 
society will be celebrated on the week- 
end of March 9th with a play consist 
ing of members of Kalo and Delphian 
and a dinner-dance, to be held at the 
Hershey Hotel, as has been the cus- 
tom. ; 

Casting for the play took place last 
week and the cast has been faithfully 
practicing for the past week. The 
names of the members of the cast ap-

The combined organizations of the 
Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. have 
planned a party to be held tomorrow 
night. It will begin at eight o'clock 
in Kalo Hall and will be built around 
the Valentine motif. 

In charge of the program are Ruth 
Heminway and Marlin Espenshade. 
The Y's invite all to attend the party, 
to enjoy the full evening of fun and 
sociability in games and fellowship, 
and, last but not least, for the re- 
freshments that will be provided. 

Bucknell To Annex 
Third League Win 

Kubisen Scores 20 Points ; 
Haker Lifts Losers' Total 

A sturdy band of Dutchmen herded 
together the fast fading Bisons, and 
sent them back to the Indians, over- 
powering them by the score of 59-50, 
last Monday night. 

A microscopic crowd filed into the 
spacious Lebanon High School gym, 
and saw a scrappy Steve Kubisen lea»' 
the Lebanon Valley quintet to victory 
scoring 20 points and playing- a bang- 
up floor game, to annex the hero pole 
for the evening. 

Bob Artz again leaped into the lime- 
light when, in the last quarter with 
Bucknell leading 45-44, he tossed in a 
difficult under the basket shot to put 
the Valley again into the lead, one 
which they did not relinquish for the 
remainder of the game. 

The high scoring Mease again tal- 
lied 14 points, but was decidedly off 
form as he failed to make a couple of 
easy shots. However, Ed Schillo again

Conservatory Adds 
To Teaching Staff 

Miss Virginia Darnell made her ar- 
rival at Lebanon Valley with the be- 
ginning of the new semester. This 
new member of the staff of Conser- 
vatory teachers will give instructions 
in all the woodwind instruments to 
classes as well as private lessons. Al- 
though young, Miss Darnell has had 
much experience in both teaching and 
orchestral work. 

She has been associated with the 
Orchestrette Classique which was un- 
der the direction of Miss Fredrique 
Petrides. Also to her credit is her 
playing oboe and clarinet in the New 
York Women's Symphony Orchestra. 
Not only with such high type organi- 
zations, but also with well known jazz 
orchestras, has she made her appear- 

In radio broadcasts and with many 
dance bands she has played oboe, sax- 
ophone, and clarinet in jazz orches- 
tras. One of the ones with which she 
was associated was the all-girl ore lies 
tra of Rita Rio. Another was the 
Fourteen Brick Tops. In her travels 
Miss Darnell has visited in every state 
in the union and has been at Columbia 
University, University of California, 
University of Southern California, 
and Coe College. 

In order to gain her education, this 
talented young woman earned her way 
through college by playing with dance 
bands. Both her B.S. and M.A. were 
gained at Columbia University. Since 
she has begun teaching, the talented 
new member has taught a year and a 
half at Shreveport, Louisiana, as su- 
pervisor of instrumental music. While 
acting in this capacity her elementary 
hand won the state championship. A: 
Columbia she assisted in the teaching 
of chamber music. To her credit als 
is the large number of private lessons 
she gave during her stay in her na- 
tive city of New York.

National Advertising Service, Inc. 

College Publishers Representative 
420 Madison Ave. New York. N.Y. 


.... Advertising 

One of the most important factors 
entering into modern business man- 
agement is advertising. The results of 
concerted campaigns by any number 
of organizations bear witness to the 
fact that "it pays to advertise." Com- 
mercial advertising sustains to a great 
extent the radio broadcasting system 
of the United States, occupies about 
28% of the column space of this 
week's LA VIE, and furnishes count- 
less colored pictures for children's 

However, commercial concerns 
aren't the only organizations attesting 
to the beneficial results of advertising. 
Colleges use it, and although it takes 
several different forms it is advertis- 
ing none-the-elss, and it pays too. To 
advertise is not only to publish in 
newspapers and bulletins, but "to call 
public attention to, esp., by emphasiz- 
ing desirable qualities, in order to 
arouse a desire to purchase, invest, 
patronize or the like," as Webster 
would have it. 

Public attention is called to Leba- 
non Valley by a number of things be- 
side the public press. A football team 
servxes this purpose, although its ef- 
fect is perhaps more often over-rated 
than accurately gauged. Scientific sur- 
vey has shown that athletic records 
are not taken into consideration, eith- 
er by prespective students nor pro- 
spective financial contributors. 

In contrast, there are other agen- 
cies of advertising whose effect is of- 
ten under-rated, at least in some 
quarters. Two of these are the Life 
Work Recruits and the Glee Club. Al- 
though these are not primarily adver- 
tising in their character, that is a by- 
product, so to speak. Last weekend 
the former organization sent out de- 
putations which conducted sixteen ser- 
vices in thirteen United Brethren 
churches, travelling nearly 900 miles. 
Aboutt wenty-five students participat- 

Lebanon Valley's Glee Club is on 
tour this week with a program of 
eight concerts. They too are appear- 
ing before church audiences, and it 
is that fact that makes the advertis- 
ing value of both Recruits and Glee 
Club effective. The college is depend- 
ent to a large extent upon those very 
people who are being reached this 
week, many of whom never heard of 
the "Flying Dutchmen." It pays to

Ira's out to lunch again, so we ali 
(We're from South Philadelphia) de- 
cided to play with the idea of doing 
a column like she does (or worse). 
Please, you all, remember we all is 
just playing, and if you all get stabbed 
in the back, that'll teach you all not 
tc trust even your own shadow. 

Well slap me on the face and call 
me Rosie ! I never did see such drippy 
dopes as lined the walls outside of 
Miss Fencil's office yester morn. A 
body would 'a thought they were giv- 
ing out over-due book notices the way 
some was actin'. Marks ! Lands sakes, 
you should worry about a bunch of 
little bitty old letters. Fifty years 
from now your grandchildren won't 
listen to you brag even if you do get 
all A's. Yes sir, Chillen, take a tip 
from your old auntie — don't even think 
about them. Want to know how to 
forget them? Well, just sit yourself 
down and study for four hours a night 
for five nights a week, never cut class • 
es, and take notes, and sure enough, 
you will all find you don't worry about 
marks any more. Confucius wou'd 
probably have something to say about 
that too. 

Have you fallen over Christian Bit- 
rer (Wow!) Walk lately? What dig- 
nity- What poise! What? Not con- 
tent with being the big cheese in the 
dining hall and keeping us all in our 
places, he branches out. Now he's as- 
sumed a professional manner. Gone 
are the days of the carefree youth. 
Poor Chris, and he was such a nice 
kid too! 

This is to warn some of the campus 
flashes who insist upon arranging 
dates over the phone for two people 
who don't want to see each other 
(last booth in local hangout). It 
doesn't take a girl to make a fool 
of some guys; nature beats her to it. 

Evie E. sends in a request. Would 
the boys on the third floor please take 
up a collection to buy Baldwin and 
Guinivan a piece of soap. It seems 
that the boys were so hard up they 
had to take to hi-jacking. And they 
did need soap! Or had you noticed? 

"Ring out wild bells." You've prob- 
ably all heard the story about having 
io build a fire under a donkey to make 
him budge. Well, Sunday afternoon 
proved that with the application of 
fire in the right places even glamor 
can move. Across from North Hall 
they clamored for all the world like a 
pack of fire horses. (Yes, Boys, it was 
even worth disturbing your Sunday 
siesta to see that sight. It was better 
than the fire.) The whole thing was 
such a shock that some of the costumes 
worn rivaled the fire for an audience.

What this campus needs is more in- 
formal gefi-togethers like the Hoe- 
down last week. Now there was some- 
thing! When you weren't down on the 
floor falling all over yourself, you 
were up on the balcony laughing at 
everybody else. The faculty was there 
showing us whipper-snappers how it 
was done. Even those who came to 
snicker at his enemies stayed to roar 
at his friends. It's too bad the bal- 
cony brigade didn't see fit to get down 
off their high horses and have fun. 
For further lessons on hoe-down danc- 
ing see "Grubby." He had a private 
teacher all evening. 

Muted murmuring from a murder- 
ous male — "If they can have heart- 
sister week, we ought to have lung- 
brother week or something." 

. . . and we didn't tell half we know. 
Aren't you lucky? 

day studentettes 

Freshmen Bet y Johns and Ruth 
Kreider, in their eagerness to obey or- 
ders given by seniors Bunny Witmer 
and Peg Weimer to turn off a light, 
plunged the D. S. R. into total dark- 
ness. Unsuspecting coeds entering 
were met with eerie screeches and 
ghostly flashes of light. The prank- 
sters are slightly out of season — it's 
not Hallowe'en, it's Valentine Day. 

During one of the ever-present 
"What are you wearing?" discussions 
Betty Ann Rutherford gave ample 
proof of the fact that she is a city- 
bred gal, and not a country lass. She 
asked what someone was intending to 
wear to go to the "farm dance." When 
the expression was carefully diagnos- 
ed, it was revealed that she was re- 
ferring to the Women's Athletic As- 
sociation hoe-down. 

Lillian Leisey should be commend- 
ed for her skillful maneuvering of 
Heart Sister Week among the day 
students. All freshmen who were 
skeptical about the idea, now are sold 

A spirit of cooperation pervaded the 
atmosphere when a crowd of no less 
than a dozen young damsels — all rec- 
ognized letter-writing specialists, 
gathered about Lela Lopes and advis- 
ed her, free of charge, as to what 
should be said in a round robin letter. 

The W. D. S. R. has in its posses- 
sion something that might be of some 
consequence in psychology lab periods 
— a means of discovering how an un- 
yielding door affects different indi- 
viduals. A thousand times a day in 
a thousand different ways, persons 
are affected when they turn the knob 
and push the door, to no avail. Final- 
ly in despair, anger, hope, etc., the 
victim of the uncompromising door 
seeks entrance elsewhere. 

Profound silence followed a piercing 
shriek from Katherine Jane Sherk the 
other morning. Upon being question- 
ed, Kay Jay explained that she had 
just discovered that the girl whom 
she thought to be her Heart Sister, 
was doing kind deeds for someone 
else. We're wondering how that Sherk 
girl would react if she were to stum- 
ble upon a revealing clue to a murder 

The W. D. S. R. witnessed numer- 
ous and varied emotional outbursts 
during Monday's lunch hour. The fact 
that marks were issued doesn't, as a 
rule, suggest any reason for merry- 
making, but Dot Donough's case is the 
exception that proves the rule.

^rtz Gives Valley Lead 
h$ Staley Insures Win 

wijje dangerous Lions who defied the 
and Bisons, were yanked by 


tail by & band of Dutchmen and 


se d back into a tie for last place 
the aforementioned Dutchmen. 
V ' It was limpy Bobby Artz, that fa 
us exponent of the left handed shot 
'\ came through for his Alma Ma- 
jn the last quarter, to give Leba- 
Valley College a 38-35 victory 
Albright College. 
Starting the last stanza, Artz re- 
cced Kuhn, and immediately tossed 
n t h r ee field goals to make up a five 
point deficit and give L. V. C. a one 
point advantage. Don Staley then took 
Us cue and tossed in two more field 
goals to secure the victory, and to 
; eaV e about 2,000 frenzied spectators 

The first half was a high scoring 
tussle with "Twin" Mease tossing 
them up from all angles to keep the 
Valley in the ball game. Given some 
timely aid by Staley, Mease tallied 
fourteen of the Blue and White's to- 
tal of 24 in the first half. The Lions 
garnered 23 counters giving the Val- 
ley a 24-23 lead at intermission. 

Lebanon Valley started the second 
half badly. Mease was completely 
checked, while Albright kept hitting 
♦he hoop to gain a 33-28 advantage 
at the end of the third period. Artz 
then entered the fray, and the game 
from that point on is history. While 
Artz and Staley tallied ten points 
between them, the rest of the lads 
threw a strangle hold on the Lions, 
giving them only two points. 

Mease, Artz, and Staley were the 
heroes of the game offensively, while 
Staley, Kubisen, and Youse played 
good defensive ball for the Blue and 

For Albright Mc Kinney, Petruc- 
k and Czaikoski carried the scoring 
tonJen, tallying 34 of the 35 points 


Girls Honor Team 
Tops Albright 

According to the teamwork and ac- 
curacy shown by the L. V. C. girls 
when they downed Albright 34 to 23 
on Tuesday night, prospects for a suc- 
cessful basketball season are favor- 

During the first quarter the home 
team jumped into a 10 to 4 advan- 
tage over Albright by a swift scor- 
ing attack led by Louise Saylor, who 
placed four field goal?., while Herr 
supplied the other. 

The L. V. C. guards unsuccessfully 
attempted zone defense during the 
second quarter with the result that, at 
the end of the half, Albright was 
trailing the home team by only one 
point. The third quarter was rather 
slow in action with neither team out- 
shining the other. Both teams fought 
for the lead, but the score at the end 
of the quarter was 21 to 21. 

During the final quarter Saylor 
went on another scoring spree ring- 
ing up four field goals and a foul 
shot for L. V. C, while the guards 
held the visitors to a lone field goal. 
This made the final score 34 to 23 in 
favor of Lebanon Valley.

Lions Frosh Defeat 
Valley Yearlings 

The Albright Freshman basketball 
team kept its undefeated record un- 
blemished while defeating the L. V. C. 
Frosh last Saturday at Reading. Led 
by Dick Shollenberger, ex-Reading 
High flash who personally accounted 
for 23 points with eight field goals 
and seven out of nine foul tries, the 
Lions amassed a total of 53 points by 
the end of the contest. Superior in 
every aspect of the game, the Al- 
bright men outscored the Dutchmen in 
every period. 

The first canto was the only one in 
which the L. V. Frosh put up any 
form of a fight, scoring 10 counters 
to their opponents 11. The home 
team in the second quarter went on a 
spree to end up at half time on the 
long end of a 22-12 score. 

Continuing the same pace through- 
out the third period with practically 
the starting team playing the major- 
ity of the game, the Albright outfit 
outscored the Frockmen in this per- 
iod 13-4. The hectic last period fin- 
ally ended with the Albright Frosh 
leading 50-23 in the most lop-sided 
game the L. V. first year men have 
played to date. 

Shollenberger of course Led the 
scoring for Albright with fine support 
from Spangler and Harkins. Gollam 
with four field goals and a free throw 
led the Valley scorers. 

Coaches Complete 
Basketball Schedule 

Coach Frock, in a recent announce 
ment, issued the statement that the 
Varsity and Freshmen basketball 
schedules have been completed. 

The Blue and White quintet had a 
pending date on February 17, the 
game to be played at Baltimore, Md., 
with the opponent being the strong 
Mt. St. Mary's five that defeated the 
Dulchmen last year 40-39. The game 
was to be played as a part of a double 
header, but the arrangements were 
not completed because the double fea- 
ure has not met withs uccess in Bal- 
timore. As a result the Varsity will 
have a night off on that date. 

The Freshmen on February 23, in a 
preliminary game to the Moravian-L. 
V. C. affair, will meet with stiff op- 
position from the Pine Tree Confec- 
tioner's from Lebanon. The Pine Tree 
has three former L. V. C. players on 
its squad, namely Raymie Frey, Ralph 
Billett and Claire Snell, the first two 
being former captains of the Blue 
and White five. Frey will be remem- 
bered as the high scorer in the colleg- 
iate loop for two years, while Billett 
was known as a steadying hand during 
his collegiate career. 

Seniors Down Frosh 
In Close Game,33-30 

On Saturday afternoon the Seniors 
and Frosh got together to play their 
postponed interclass league game that 
resulted in a 33-30 triumph for the 
hard fighting Seniors. There were no 
individual stars for either team as the 
squads functioned in excellent coor- 
dination. The game's outcome was 
very much undecided even up until the 
last half minute of play as each team 
had many opportunities to score on 
which they capitalized to a great ex- 

The score at half time was 20-19 in 
favor of the Frosh, while at the end 
of the third quarter it was 24-22 with 
the Seniors on top.

Day-Students Sponsor 
Handball Tournament 

Activity in the Day Students' Hand- 
ball Tournament sponsored by the 
Congress got under way this week 
with the playing of most of the first 
round matches. Twenty-four have sig- 
nified their intention to compete in the 
annual tournament. 

The winner of two out of the three 
games in each match will be advanced 
to the next round. Last year's attempt 
failed inasmuch as most of the play- 
ers failed to meet their opponents and 
the match d ragged on. This year, how- 
ever, those who fail to play their 
match by Friday will be automatically 
eliminated. This rule will be in force 
for each of the successive rounds so 
that play might speedily continue. 

As Others See Us 

Extract from the Pottstown "Daily 

Elmer "Little Chump" Pollack, for- 
mer Pottstown High School star, is 
now sinking them in the old buck.-: 
for Coach Jerry Frock's Lebanon Val 
ley Freshman team. 

Another member of the "Circus," 
commonly known as the Freshman 
team, who has come into the lime- 
light this past week, is Warren "Doug 
Corrigan" Silliman. "Corrigan's 
wrong-way shot in the game with the 
Hershey Industrial School has made 
him the leading contender for the 
title of number one clown. 

After your scribe viewed the game 
last night, he believes that "Lexy" is 
pressing close on the heels of "Corn 
gan." Give the boy time to develop 
and the top position is his. 

After throwing all those bricks, it 
is time to intermingle a few bou- 
quets. Last night's game with the 
Lebanon Business College showed 
some promise of the "Circus" turning 
into a real basketball team.

By Digitus 

With "blue book returns" on hand, 
your friend and reporter has decided 
to continue his educational pursuits 
at the ""valley" rather than transfer 
to an n.stitutJon abroad to seek high- 
er leaining. So I return to the pleas- 
ant task of writing this column. 

George Barnhart who gave up day- 
student life for the glamour of the 
"dorm," is back on the road again. 
Now these are several reasons why 
men leave the "dorm" but in this par- 
ticular case, it was a physiological de- 
fect — his heart belonged to Lebanon, 
while the rest remained on the campus. 
Consequently in order to correct his 
defect, George returned to the fair city 
to be nearer to his "little hello! girl" 
(telephone operator to you). 

Harry Wolf certainly made a "faux 
pas" when he sat in a certain Buick 
for fifteen minutes before he realized 
that it was the wrong car. He shiver 
ed when it dawned upon him, because 
he recognized the car to be the prop 
erty of Dr. and Mrs. Bender. A good 
lazy way to avoid a repetition is to 
leave your car unwashed so that by 
its dirt you may know it. 

Sterling Kleiser, the "little" sen 
ior, who is known as a drummer and 
"jam" artist, found out a little too 
late that he did not have the physique 
for the "grunt and groan" sport 
Whenever one wishes to warn a fellow 
student in regards to his physical wel 
fare, the expression is "you know what 
happened to Kleiser!" Aside from that 
point, we all wish our friend a speedy 
recovery from the quadruped stage to 
the normal biped stage of locomotion 
On a recent speaking tour, our pres 
ident Dr. Lynch addressed a large 
group of prisoners in a certain peni- 
tentiary. When he had finished his 
discourse the prisoners applauded him 
loudly. The warden surprised at the 
response told Doctor Lynch that it was 
indeed a rare occasion when the men 
expressed their appreciation of a 
guest speaker by applause. Later in 
the day, one of the inmates remarked 
that they all liked our president, b 
cause "he was just Lke one of us." 

A week or so ago, when someone 
asked you if you had a nickel, you 
were inclined to be suspicious of tnem; 
because the famous draft paper to the 
Swiss Army had found many 'suck 
ers." The conscript read: "Thanks for 
the nickel! You are now a member of 
the Swiss Army. Your job will be to 
shoot holes through Swiss Cheese 
Don't be a Limburger and make a 
stink about it. Get your nickel the 
same way I got mine!" 

Dr. Bender thought in broader terms 
than molecules when he expressed the 
desire to rush through the text before 
the balmy days of spring. 

Spectroscope Topic 
For Chemistry Club 

A meeting of the Chemistry Club 
was held Tuesday evening in the 
chemistry lecture room. The meet- 
ing began with a report on the amount 
of literature that has been obtained 
for the library of the club. This was 
followed by a rapid glance at some of 
the material and then a discussion of 
current events which dealt mainly 
with the phenomena of lightning. 

The main topic of the evening was 
handled by Dick Moody. The topic 
of "Spectroscopy'' was a bit technical 
but was mainly concerned with the 
study and discussion of the lines of 
light that are given off by the atoms 
and as they are viewed through the 
spectroscope. After having been 
shown pictures of the spectra of the 
atoms of helium, neon, nitrogen, and 
hydrogen, and after the structure ol 
the spectroscope was explained, the 
group adjourned to the physics lab 
where the club members viewed trie 
spectrum of the mercury lamp. 

The meeting was adjourned after 
the group was shown some pictures 
of the spectra of several ol the gases 
and of the rays of the sun.

found his stride, racking up 13 coun 
ers and playing the part of a ball 
hawk for the evening. Staley tossed 
three helpful deuces, but for the ma- 
jor part stayed in the backcourt ready 
to fall into the defense. Youse, cap 
tain for the evening, worried the Bi- 
son forwards considerably, and con- 
sistently took the ball off the back- 

The Valley started things off by tal- 
lying six quick points, but Buckneli 
,soon found the range and ran up a 12 
j lead at the first quarter. 

However, in the second period, 
Mease, Schillo, and Kubisen began 
counting two pointers to outscore the 
isons 17-7 and to earn a 26-19 lead 
at the intermission. 

The third period was a high scoring 
iession with Buckneli holding an edge 
x6-14. Baker was the big gun for the 
rdsons, while Mease, Kubisen, ana 
otaley tallied the points for L. V. C 
Going into the last stanza holding 
a 40-35 advantage, the Valley increas- 
ed it to a 44-37 lead. Baker of Buck- 
neli got a hot hand and began scoring 
on nice fake shots and set shots froai 
the side to give Buckneli a 45-44 lead. 
Artz then came in, scored his bucket, 
and was replaced by Schillo. The Val- 
ley went on from there to win, 59-50. 

For the visitors it was Baker, scor- 
ing 16 points that kept the Bisons in 
the ball game. Kiick played good de- 
fensive ball for a losing cause.

Seminar Discussion 
Led By Dr. Shannon 

An interested group of representa- 
tive students gathered in Philo Hail 
last Tuesday afternoon to participate 
; n a seminar discussion under the 
leadership of Dr. Frederick F. Shan- 
non. Paul Horn presented Dr. Shan- 
non to the group after a few appro 
priate remarks. 

Dr. Shannon challenged the group 
to continue thinking about the edu- 
cated consciousness which had been 
introduced in the morning chapel pe- 
riod. The leader said how there are 
certain truths that seem to wear in, 
rather than wear out. In this educat- 
ed consciousness of ours there is a 
workshop, which is always changing 
so that we never get finished with it. 
In the consciousness we find a lover's 
walk that is expressed by the trage- 
dies and romances of life. However, 
above all of these, we find in our edu 
cated consciousness a cathedral. 

After the brief talk, which prepared 
the way for the discussion, the atten- 
tion was centered on the list of ques- 
tions printed in last week's issue of 
question concerning how we can know 
t>od's will for our life in choosing a 
life work and other important issues, 
Dr. Shannon stated that only life it- 
self can offer the answer. He took 
a personal example in explaining how 
his life answered that question. There 
1S only the mental distance that keeps 
«s from God.

! Education Discussed 
In Extended Chapel 

Speaking on the subject, "Winning 
the Blue Ribbon of Education," Dr. 
Frederick F. Shannon, noted Ameri- 
can cleryman, addressed the students 
of Lebanon Valley College in an ex- 
tended chapel period Tuesday morn- 
ing, February 20. 

In his address Dr. Shannon stated 
that "winning the blue ribbon of edu- 
cation" depends upon the individual 
and his relations with other individ- 
uals in the world about him. He at- 
tributed the cause of the present so- 
cial upheaval in our civilization to the 
failure of individuals to live in hai- 
mony with other individuals in the 
world. Then he remarked that one of 
the greatest qualities in any kind of

Kalo's annual dinner-dance has been 
set for Saturday, March 30. It will be 
held, as has been the custom, at Hotel

F. & M. Tumbled From League Lead 
As Result Of Its Over-confidence 

Seeking revenge for a 48-25 defeat administered by Franklin and Mar- 
shall early in the season, Lebanon Valley College, defying the elements, jour- 
neyed to Lancaster and handed the Diplomats a decisive 42-33 reverse. 

They not only avenged their previous defeat, but also tumbled the high 
and mighty Diplomats from their perch atop the Eastern Pennsylvania Col- 
legiate League.

A Leap Year dance with everything 
vice versa the usual will be staged by 
Clionian Literary Society in the 
Alumni Gymnasium Saturday, Febru- 
ary 24, from 8 to 11:45 o'clock. Music 
will be produced by the L. V. C. nick- 

Giving each a chance to see how it 
feels to be in the other's shoes, the 
procedure of escorting, cutting-in, and 
the like, will be reversed. 

To plan the event, President Louise 
Saylor has appointed the following 
committee: Louella Schindel, chair- 
man; Marjorie Kishbaugh, Rae Se- 
christ, Eleanor Holbrook, and Gen- 
evieve Stansfield. 

Regarding the Dutchmen tilt as 
just a game fdling out the schedule, 
the F. & M. quintet were awakened 
to reality in a rather rude manner 
as the L. V. C. five played the conde- 
scending Diplomats off the arena. 

With Ed Schillo and Ralph Mease 
doing the honors, the Valley assumed 
a quick lead that they never lost, al-

l.R.C. Club Holds Meeting 
In Philo Hall Tonight 

The International Relations Club 
will hold their monthly club meeting 
this evening, February 22, in Philo 
Hall at 7:30 o'clock. A brief busi- 
ness meeting in charge of the presi- 
dent, Jane Ehrhart, will open the 
meeting. A general discussion period 
will follow under the direction of Carl 
Ehrhart and Robert Dresel, the Pro- 
gram Committee. The topic for dis- 
cussion will be American-Japanese Re- 
lations, dealing particularly with the 
much discussed trade agreements. 
The I. R. C. Club has increased its 
effectiveness because of the recent re- 
organization and the excellent super- 
vision of Professor Miller, adviser to 
the Club.

Delphians To Hold 
Anniversary Dance 

On Saturday night, February 24, 
between the hours of seven and twelve 
over thirty-five couples will dine and 
dance in the beautiful ballroom of the 
Hotel Harrisburger on the eighteenth 
anniversary of Delphian Literary So- 
ciety. After the dinner has been 
served, there will be dancing to the 
smooth syncopation of Howard Gale 
and his orchestra. 

In the receiving line with the an- 
niversary president, Miss Rachel 
Holdcraft and her escort, Robert 
Rapp, will be Miss Barbara Bowman, 
opening president, and Richard Bald 
win; Miss Kathryn Zwally, second 
semester president, and VV a I I e v 
George; and the chaperones, Dr. and 
Mrs. G. A. Richie and Dr. and Mrs. 
S. H. Derickson. However, in the 
event that the health of Dr. Derick- 
son does not permit his presence at 
the dance, Dr. and Mrs. M. L. Stokes, 
who are attending as alumni, will 
serve as chaperones. 

Though the alumnae have not re- 
sponded nearly so well this year as 
in previous years, the few who are re- 
turning for the occasion have expres- 
sed much enthusiasm for the first 
dinner-dance the society has ever at- 
tempted. Among those returning arc 
Agnes Morris, Nellie Morrison, Louise 
De Huff, Miriam Holdcraft, and Bet- 
ty Reed Bulota. 

While the majority of the society 
members with alumnae and friends 
are enjoying themselves not manj 
miles from here in the capital city of 
our state, a number of the Delphian 
girls, who have not planned to go to 
the dinner-dance, will attend in Leba- 
non that very popular and much ac- 
claimed movie, "Gone With the Wind." 
Miss Margaret A. Wood will chap- 
erone the group as well as furnish the

. . . When Not To Sleep 

Among the most general misconcep- 
tions, and there are quite a few, 
around Lebanon Valley is that regard- 
ing the purpose of the daily chapel 
period. A few people have mistaken 
notions about such things as the cut 
system, the Men's Senate, and the use 
of walks in preference to the grass; 
but the ignorance concerning chapel 
is colossal. No lesser word will do. 

Students who use the 8:55 period to 
catch up on studying never consider 
its obvious disadvantages as such. No 
one can concentrate with such outside 
interference as the pipe-organ, the 
speaker of the morning, the pounding 
radiators, and the snores of his neigh- 
bor. Such half -study can result only 
in bewildering an already confused 
mind, contused surely, else ihere 
would be no need to study in chapel. 

Tnen there is the custom oi indul- 
ging in a twenty minute siesta. It 
seems strange that anyone should pre- 
fer a chapel seat to a bed, regardless 
of that bed's shortcomings. The seats 
m Lngle Hall are not even upholster- 
ed, and furthermore the backs aren't 
high enough to provide a comfortable 
head-rest. We know from experience. 
The mortality rate of victims whose 
spinal defects originated in their at- 
tempts to sleep comfortably in chapei 
uelies analysis. It just can't be done. 

Bull-sessions are quite popular too. 
Perhaps it's the same natural impulse 
that leads the average American to 
seek the latest news, or again it may 
be an attempt to rest the tongue and 
relieve it from the strain of an hour's 
enforced silence in an eight o'clock. 
Whatever it is, it's almost irresistable, 
which is queer. The same speaker and 
radiators interfere here too. Conver- 
sation is never pleasant when too 
much repetition is necessary; and yell- 
ing in another person's ear isn't po- 

So it would seem that, since attend- 
ance is taken and cuts are strictly lim- 
ited, the best and most profitable 
thing for all of us to do would be to 
enter into the program as it is pre- 
sented. It is the only way by which 
the purpose of chapel may be fulfill- 
ed. The effectiveness of the chapel 
period depends as much upon the indi- 
vidual student as it does upon those 
leading the devotions. It's up to us. 




Sophs Decide Upon 
Dance Time And Place 

More definite plans for the Sopho- 
more Hop were laid at a meeting of 
the class of '42 on Tuesday. The dance 
will be held in the Annville High 
School gymnasium on March 8. After 
a short discussion it was decided to 
engage the "Lebanonians" for the 
dance. This popular band from Leba- 
non has played at previous dances 
held by college groups and has been 
well received.

By Touchie 

I thought (mistakably it seems) 
that connoisseurs (sp., ed?) of litera- 
ture knew without being told that a 
book doesn't have to be hot off the 
press to be good. But on the shelf 
just inside the door are (among oth- 
ers) four books for which the whole 
campus clamored only yestterday. Now 
the hue and cry is for other books; 
the mob clamors for that which is 
newest, while these four — in plain 
sight of all who enter the library, 
mind you — gather dust unnoticed. The 
books are: 

North to the Orient, by Anne Mor- 
row Lindbergh. Listen for a Lonesome 
Drum, by Carl Carmer. The Citadel, 
by A. J. Cronin. Four Hundred Mill- 
ion Customers — Carl Crow. These, be 
it noted, are merely the most out- 
standing horrible examples of the 
dreadful fate which awaits books in 
the L. V. C. library. 

And now, enough of this diatribe. 
If you have read the good old books, 
try some new ones. Too Much College, 
by Stephen Leacock, hits the spot 
with us. Professor Leacock thinks 
there's a lot wrong with the educa- 
tional system of the U. S. and Canada 
and tells why, in a humorous way. 
Aughinbaugh's / Swear by Apollo, ; s 
interesting — but not terribly differ- 
ent, as we were led to believe by the 
title. It's another doctor's autobiog- 
raphy (see Horse and Buggy Doctor, 
or An American Doctor's Odyssey, if 
you can't get this) . 

You might, by the merest chance, 
be interested in The Notebooks of Le- 
onardo da Vinci. 


I. v. stage 



c/ap studentettes 

By Wanda Ride 

The expression "What a day!" has 
as many different meanings as the 
number of persons who use it, but all 
the dear little dames who weathered 
the icy blasts last week, seemed to 
mean the same thing. You should 
have heard them swapping yarns 
about the snow drifts they ploughed 
through and the frozen windshields 
that had to be cleaned. Really, it 
sounded more like a meeting of the 
N. L. A. (National Lyre's Associa- 
tion) than a group of demure L. V. C. 
day students. The tales were all so 
spine-chilling that the contest ended 
in a draw. 

It certainly is surprising how one 
individual can change the atmosphere 
of the W. D. S. R., but it so happens 
that the individual is none other than 
Adele Black. There are certain days 
that Adele seems to be the happy-go- 
lucky girl we've always known her to 
be. But then comes the time when 
even freshmen are silenced by Adele's 
dignity and poise — all because she has 
departed from the lowly ranks of stud- 
ents, and has soared to the heights of 
professorship. If you're wondering 
how well she retains her dignity, just 
ask her how she handles red-headed 
rowdies who call her names and throw 
snowballs at her on her way to 

You've grown weary of laughing at 
the traveling hatter who wears from 
three to thirty-three hats stacked 
high upon his head, but you, too, could 
have laughed again if you'd have seen 
Mary Ellen KIopp hurrying to put on 
a second gym suit over the one she 
had already donned. The funny part 
of it is, she didn't realize that she was 
wearing two, until the owner of the 
one turned to drastic measurers to 
find her missing physical education 
class apparel. 

Life is just one surprise after an- 
other! Don't ya' know what Mary 
Grace Light accomplished? Through 
her untiring efforts, the door knob 
was at last repaired. She tells us 
that she "gave Bert a bawling-out 
for not fixing the door" and in turn, 
poor M. G. had to listen to a lecture 
on the technique of opening and clos- 
ing doors. The lecture included sta- 
tistics on the number of doors that 
are treated so outrageously and the 
number of new door knobs purchased 
per college building yearly. Honestly, 
we never realized what super -beings 
we school children are. Janitors should 
be given a chapel period to remind us. 


By Ira Asaph 

After a snow bound week (Fuzz 
had it wrong. Ira was OUT, not out 
for lonch), your boy reporter returns 
to his post on the wings of Mercury. 
Perhaps his Muse is slightly frostbit- 
ten, but this is one fiery typewriter 
that cannot be put on ice for long. 

SCOOP! That's what they're call- 
ing Jean Snavely these days, mainly 
because she has the uncanny gift for 
knowing everything. Could it be that 
she's in tune with the nether world, 
or does she possess a magic lamp? 
Whatever it is, Scoop Jean, please 
turn your knowledge to good accoun. 
and contact Ira. 

Once again the shower rooms ring 
with those hair-raising sounds pro- 
duced by the combination of Swiss yo- 
delers, West Virginia hill-billies, and 
hog callers who constitute the Glee 
Club, and whispers reach our ears of 
that group's doings while on tour (or 
do I mean tear?) They are a self- 
protecting group though, those Glee 
Muggers. Ira learned enough to ask 
questions, but got no onswers. For 
example : Why can't the object of Liz- 
zy Spangler's attention be disclosed? 
Who is the mysterious person who oc- 
cupied Kissie's precious time at Thur- 
mont? And? and?? ad infinitum. 

'Sfunny how 'smany things pass un- 
noticed for 'slong. No. 1 — Now that 
the school s'chronic bachelor has dated 
the same fraulein for more than three 
times in a row, Ira can add one more 
couple to his list of steadies, namely 
the Scherfel-Smith duo. No. 2— The 
Morrow-Daugherty combination, that 
was lukewarm at best, seems to have 
cooled to absolute zero. Number three 
takes the form of one of those daring, 
clairvoyant predictions, for which Ira 
hopes he is by now infamous: The 
Bordwell-Seiverling team, after a long 
relapse and several false starts may 
soon be clicking steadily again; just 
in time for spring, too. 

Just a little society gabble then, a 
la our friend Pepys, "And so to bed." 
We hope that by the time you read 
this Kalo will have set a date. The 
gals be all in a tizzy trying to decide 
whether they shall go garbed as- the 
spirit of winter or the spirit (s?) of 
spring. All this brain-racking because 
one minute Kalo is before Easter and 
the next minute after.

Real progress has been made in y 
past week in putting the polish to T} * 
Youngest. The cast is now comply ± 
Caroline Kissinger in the femin^' 
lead has come back from the Qj 6 
Club trip. Her part is rather diffi e , 
to get into — it is the sugary-^ 1 
type of star, one might even say o Ve ^ 
feminine. However, with past st 
experience behind her, C a r o 1 i ^ 
should be able to do the part justic ? 

One of the most amazing advan 
during recent rehersals can be noted 
in the deep bass voice developed h- 
Irving Oberholtzer. This serves to 
overcome his tendency to jump around 
the stage in a manner not befittin 
the pompous, dignified man of f ort 
which he is playing. 

Martha Davies, as the mother j s 
too, cultivating the voice of an elder- 
ly woman with all the plaintive whin- 
ing and rasping qualities. Her great- 
est difficulty seems to be in getting 
volume along with the quality. 

Louise Bogar, although a novice 
is doing admirably with her p ar t f 
Muff. The name fits the part perfect- 
ly — a flip, natural co-ed. Louise falls 
into her lines with no apparent effort 
just naturalness. 

A few minor comments — Barbara 
Bowman still laughs at every rehearsal 
even though the lines are well-known. 
That, needless to say, is evidence of 
real humor in the play. Dick Baldwin 
is really getting that hang-doggish, 
stepped-on attitude. And Joe Can\ 
conscientious in his part, is doing 
real justice to the part of the clean- 
cut young lawyer. 

Finally, it is of interest to note that 
Mrs. Billett is doing most of the 
directing, with Dr. Struble ready to 
step in and polish off at the end. She 
is concentrating on stage-directions. 
This is essential because the play is 
written for production on a larger 
stage, calling for two French doors. 
The L. V. stage can accommodate only 
one — hence, much cutting and chang- 
ing of stage directions. However, 
Mrs. Billett has succeeded in over- 
coming any handicaps due to stage

by bob 

a bit of water has passed un- 
Q m Dr idge since we last called 
M .jj c epithets and it seems the 
m I brought new life to our Soph- 
five in basketball. Since that 
frf? defeat at the hands of Muh- 
^'urg ^ oys ^ ave developed an 
'^inning complex by dropping Al- 
t' n Bucknell and the supposedly 
Ifhty Diplomats of F. & M. on suc- 
"Live occasions. 
That F. & M. team must have been 
ther taken aback. From all we have 
ra rd one of their star guards, Fox by 
me expressed the opinion that this 
[ebaiion Valley team was just an- 
other hick outfit and that the game 
° as j us t one of those on the schedule 
and nothing to worry about. He must 
have changed his mind after the game 
since he was held to no points during 
the contest and he and his teammates 
could score but two field goals dur- 
ing the first half. 

Those refs must have been calling 
fouls with cat-whisker precision as 
three of our fellows were ejected from 
the game via the personal foul route, 
and both Youse and Mease had three 
called on them by the end of the game. 
Our high scoring forwards are 
found at or near the top of the lea- 
gue scoring totals as Ralph Mease 
leads the league with 106 points to 
Bob Keehn's 100, and Ed Schillo fol- 
lows with 84. Little Alby Baker, of 
Bucknell, has been coming fast with 
35 points in the last two games. Dick 
Busby, of Bucknell, is also up in the 
thick of the fight, along with Chern 
and Moyer, of Ursinus. 

This game with Moravian on Fri- 
day night at Lebanon promises to be 
a thriller as the Greyhounds have 
dropped only one contest in eleven 
starts thus far this season. This will 
to the first meeting between the two 
te ams on the court but Valley fans 
ar e quite well acquainted with the 
Gr ey and White from football engage- 
ments during the past two years. 

We were glad to see the progress 
made by the two young boxing aspir- 
* nts in the Golden Gloves sponsored

Junior Team Takes 
Fifth Straight Win 

The Junior quartet annexed their 
fifth straight triumph on Tuesday in 
a hotly contested and very argument- 
ative game as they turned back the 
bruising Seniors 49-45. The referee, 
Frankie Kuhn, was handicapped in his 
work due to the very rough playing 
of the teams. Barney Bentzel came 
fully equipped for the game, as he ar- 
rived with his shoulder pads, but he 
failed to wear them in the game, al- 
though he did have use for them on 
many occasions. 

Bentzel was again high scorer for 
the game as he accounted for 22 points 
during the melee. Charley Belmer and 
George Munday with 18 and 17 points 
respectively led the Senior scoring. 
Barney Bentzel now leads the league 
scorers with 103 points in five games 
with Lamar Grow second in line with 
73 in the same number of contests. 


The high-scoring Junior quartet 
scored their fourth successive triumph 
on Friday evening as they defeated 
the Sophomore four by the top heavy 
count of 71-39. Barney Bentzel and 
Lamar Grow again led the attack as 
they rang up 23 and 26 points respec- 
tively, thus accounting for 49 tallies 
themselves. In two games these lads 
have hit the cords for 88 points be 
tween them. 

The Sophomores were aided in a los- 
ing cause by freshman Max Shively 
who rang in with twenty points which 
was more than half of the total score. 
The score at half time registered only 
29-22 in favor of the Juniors, but they 
ran wild in the fourth period scoring 
36 points to the Sophs ten. 

Seniors Leaders In 
Day-Student League 


Won Lost Per. 
Seniors 2 1.000 

Juniors 1 • -500 

Frosh 1 1 .500 

Sophs 2 .000 

The two games played- last week 
in the Day Students' league resulted 
in the victory of the Juniors over the 
Sophs and the defeat of the Frosh at 
the hands of the Seniors. 

The Juniors early ran up a score 
on the luckless Sophs who kept their 
outfit intact throughout the game. The 
second-year men came back in the sec- 
ond period to cut the lead of the Jun- 
iors to 20-16. Desperate play by both 
teams in the third quarter ended with 
the Juniors increasing their lead. In 
the final period the leaders maintained 
their advantage despite a rally by the 
Sophs. The scoring ended at 47-40 
with the Juniors leading. 

Rakow and Gingrich led the scor- 
ing for the winners with 19 and 17 
points respectively while Wornas and 
Shay each racked up 17 counters for 
the losers. 

The other game on Friday turned 
into a rout when the Seniors tried to 
annihilate the Frosh with all conceiv- 
able means, Lynch proving the most 
adept at this art. 

The frosh surprised last year's 
champs by racking up bucket and 
bucket in the first period. In spite of 
a come-back by the Seniors in the sec 
ond period, the frosh held a 20-12 lead 
at half-time. The seniors returned to 
battle, overcame the deficit, and then 
went into the lead when Rozman sank 
a number of peep shots in a row. The 
game ended with the Seniors winning 
by a score of 42-29 by virtue of their 
spree in the last quarter. 

Rozman again led the Seniors in 
the fray with 19 aided by splendid 
back-court work by Schaeffer and 
Shapiro. Lentz with eleven points to 
his credit was the most consistent 
scorer for the Frosh. 


Playing their second contest in less 
than twenty-four hours, and withouL 
the services of their ace, Bob Weiler, 
the Sophomores were badly trounced 
by the Frosh on Saturday afternoon 
in the Dorm interclass basketball 
league 34-15. Led by Detamble with 
twelve points and Shively with ten 
the Frosh had little difficulty in down- 
ing the weak Sophomore four. The 
score at half time read Sophomores 8 
and Frosh 20. 

The standings:

Juniors 5 1.000 

Frosh 2 2 .500 

Seniors 1 2 .333 

Sophomores 4 .000 

Hershev Barely Tops 
Valley Frosh, 39-37 

Two thrilling shots in the last 30 
seconds spelled defeat for L. V. Frosh 
in their game with Hershey Junior 
College on the latter's floor Tuesday 
evening. Schaeffer, high-scoring for- 
ward, was held in check throughout 
the game until he sank his only goals 
of the contest which brought his team 
out on top by a score of 39-37. 

Both teams scored nine points in the 
first quarter and left the floor at the 
hall' with Hershey ahead 19-18. The 
Frockmen spurted in the final quar- 
ter and after a see-saw battle tied the 
score at 35 all. Then Schaeffer sank 
his two buckets with seconds to go and 
clinched the victory. 

Silliman, Gollam, Matala, and Mar- 
tin divided the scoring fairly evenly, 
while Miller and Gehman led for Her-

By Digitus 
The title of my column should be 
changed to "Snow" in order to be in 
keeping with that well remembered 
Valentine sent by the weatherman 
last week. 

* * * 

Bill McKnight sat behind the wheel 
of his car and drove bravely through 
blinding snow towards his home, deep 
in the "narrows" of Myerstown. Com- 
ing upon a dark object that loomed 
ahead of him, he leaped from his car 
to see a snow plow hopelessly stuck 
in his path. Bill climbed up to the 
cab of the plow, and after making a 
brief acquaintance with the driver, 
the two of them spent the rest of the 
night in peaceful slumber. To a deer 
hunter it was just another day. 

"Prof." Stine had the face of his 
car well pushed in by another car 
that slipped its way into a clinch. 
Passing students stopped to investi- 
gate, but were quite disappointed be- 
cause the "Prof" did not get into a 
fight. Maybe the other driver was 

* * * 

As the multitude of students that 
had left their thumbs and cars in their 
garages filed off the bus, the driver in 
the sweetest sarcasm said, "I hope you 
have better luck the next time, boys." 
Could it be that the bus drivers don't 
like us? 

* * * 

That smooth sailing car of Herb 
Miller's was forced to the side of the 
road when the motor stopped dead 
Herb sought to solve the trouble but 
was unsuccessful, so he phoned for a 
mechanic. After waiting fifteen min- 
utes, Herb took another stab at the 
engine, and in several moments, he 
had it roaring with energy. As he put 
down the hood, the mechanic arrived; 
but Herb had trouble explaining, be- 
cause his car was in front of a tav- 
ern. "Oh Herby! what wouid your 
mother say?" 

* * * 

Bob Nichols, traveling with a group 
of fellow students in the bus, seeing a 
young lady standing in the aisle, call- 
ed to her and said that there was a 
seat beside him. Now this was a very 
suave gesture but his friends looking 
at the small space that had 
his calling a "seat for one," laughed 
and kidded the over anxious gentle- 
man until he was as red as the bus.

Bert, the college engineer, was over- 
heard muttering, "I wonder where the 
poor little robins went when the cold 
wave struck the South." 

Education Discussed

true education is religion. He added 
further that every individual has some 
latent form of religion whether it be 
in superstition, wisdom, art, or cul- 
ture. Dr. Shannon concluded by say- 
ing that external forces never can 
change the splendor of character and 
mind within the socialized human be- 

Dr. Shannon received his education 
at Webb School of Tennessee and Har- 
vard University. He was awarded the 
degree of Doctor of Letters from Sy- 
racuse University while the degree of 
Doctor of Laws was conferred upon 
him by Lincoln Memorial University 
of Tennessee. Since becoming a minis- 
ter Dr. Shannon has served most of 
his ministry in Chicago and Brook- 
lyn. He is now in retirement, but de- 
votes his time to addressing colleg3 
groups and youth gatherings and 
writing religious books. At present 
he is preparing to leave on a lecture- 
tour throughout the middle western 

Student Aviators 
Strengthen Wings 

The baby course of the school, the 
Civil Aeronautics Course, is progress- 
ing rapidly and is proving of interest 
to all who are taking it. Four of the 
members are in the last stage of 
training and are now practicing their 
spins, power turns, figure eights, 
power dives, etc. These members are : 
Yingst, Lynch, Lenker, and Moller, 
while Erdman and Weidman are now 
in the "check" period, during which 
time they practice their landings and 
take offs and do about three hours of 
solo work. 

Unfortunately, due to the bad 
weather conditions of the past ten 
days, the other members of the flying 
corps, Herman, Bentzel, Diefenderfer, 
and Youse have been unable to get in 
the remaining few hours of the eight 
hours of dual flying which is neces- 
sary before they are allowed to do 
any solo flying. By the time that May 
Day comes around there ought to be 
enough soloists to do a bit of stunt 
flying to entertain the visitors. 

Glee Club Returns 
From Annual Tour 

Concert To Be 
Presented At Prospect 
Park Tuesday 

By Lucie Cook 

The GJee Club of Lebanon Valley 
College returned to the campus late 
Sunday night. After completing a sue 
cessful series of concerts, they were 
all very tired and glad to return. 

The routine of the tour was much 
the same from day to day. In the 
morning they would travel from one 
place to another, buy lunch, go to the 
church, put up the stands, unpack 
gowns, rehearse, be assigned to their 
homes for the night, be taken out for 
supper, sing the concert, and then 
they were on their own. 

This group of musical diplomats up- 
held the high standards of L. V. dur- 
'ng the entire tour, in the way of con- 
duct and performance. Everyone who 
has heard them has agreed that this 
year's tour was "tops." It surpasses 
those of former years. The reason, to 
anyone who heard all of the concerts, 
is \ery obvious. This group performed 
with a greater consistency than any 
other glee club. 

When asked by your writer what 
each member liked best about the Glee 
Club trip, many answers were re- 

Jeanne Schock — "Oh, gee — every- 
thing. I liked meeting new people; 
I liked the sociability evident after 
all the concerts, and I liked the di- 

Mary Ann Cotroneo — "Everything. 
Especially hurrying from one place to 
another — and the food." 

Mary Albert — "I liked the night life 
at Washington." 

Prof. Rutledge — "All of you!" 
Henry Hoffman — "The food. There 
was lots of it. And that good old 
southern cooking and the southern 

'honey' accent the girls had." 

John Oliver — "The singing." 

Harold Yeagley — "The fine spirit of 

Verna Schlosser — "Fun of meeting 
new people and the 'eats' — and Wash- 
ington at night." 

Irrna Sholley — "I liked running 
around from one place to another." 

Arthur Jordan — "The people at 
whose homes we stayed — being in the 
Glee Club, and Thurmont." 

Harold Wild— "Thurmont." 

Robert Weiler — "My Romeo room 
mate. He's a laugh (H. Wild)." 

Mildred Gardner— "I liked the fel- 
lowship — the good comradeship 
among members. And the last concert 
thrilled me. The church itself was so 
beautiful that it did something to me 
— to all of us, and we sang our best." 

Esther Wise — "I liked everything, 
especially the day and night in Wash- 

On Tuesday, February 27, the Glee 
Club will sing in the high school at 
Prospect Park near Philadelphia. It 
will be a joint concert beginning at 8 
o'clock. The Prospect Park high school 
band will play during the first part 
of the program; the Glee Club of L. 
V. C. will sing last. 

Dr. Ziegler Presents 
World Fellowship Project 

On Monday, February 19, the de- 
votional period was conducted in cha- 
pel by Dr. S. G. Ziegler, from Day- 
ton, Ohio. Dr. Ziegler is Secretary of 
the Foreign Mission Board of the Uni- 
ted Brethren Church. 

Dr. Ziegler's message was based on 
the theme of "Envoys Extraordinary." 
He stressed the fact that our good 
wishes and sincere prayers should be 
with the men whom President Roosp 
velt sends to foreign countries to n°- 
gotiate peace treaties and to make the 
world a better place in which to live. 
He said that not all of us can be Tay- 
lors and Wellses, but there is another 
group of envoys — a group not known 
very well outside of church circles. 

A number of years ago there was 
an appeal made by students to work 
out a scheme whereby they would help 
maintain a World Friendship Project 
in West Africa. The scheme worked 
out so well that the students could 
afford to send out their own represen- 
tatives. Those institutions entering in 
the project are Otterbein, Lebanon 
I Valley, Indiana Central, York, and 

Shenandoah Colleges, and 
Theological Seminary. ° ne W a

Men's, Women's 
Teams Are Active 
In Debating Meets 

Debaters Meet 
Muhlenberg, Moravian, 
Gettysburg, Upsala 

Both the men's and women's debat- 
ing teams are launching a full sched- 
ule. Some of the debates will be given 
at schools quite a distance away. This 
week the men have four engagements. 

In the men's debates away Pau' 
Horn and Carl Ehrhart are to take 
the affirmative side of the "War 
guilt" question, which places the 
blame on the allies, at Moravian. From 
Moravian these two will go to Upsala 
at East Orange, N. J., for a debat Q 
on Friday. There the question will be 
the "Government Ownership of Rail- 
roads," on which they are taking the 
affirmative view. 

On Thursday Florian Cassady and 
Robert Mays are to match their wits 
with Muhlenberg students when they 
take the affirmative side of the ques- 
tion, "Federal Aid of States to Edu- 
cation." At four o'clock on Saturday 
these two will have a more informal 
debate on the question, "American 
Isolation in the European War," with 

The snowy weather interfered witn 
the scheduled debates of the women s 
teams with Ursinus. Debaters Louise 
Saylor, Lillian Leisey, Floda Trout, 
Betty Anne Rutherford, Dorothea 
Donough, and Mildred Cross were 
"snowed out." 

Philo Leader 



Richard Baldwin was elected presi- 
dent of the Senior class in an election 
held last week to run-off a tie. At 
the same time the last-year students 
named Donald Ludwig to serve as 
vice-president, and Carmella Galloppi 
as secretary. William Bender will re- 
tain his position as treasurer.

Today is "Leap Year Day" on L. V. 
campus. Sponsored by the Y. W. 
C. A., this day has been planned to 
give the "weaker" sex a chance to 
play the gallant swain. Various re- 
gulations have been set and followed 
by the girls. From the time they went 
to breakfast this morning and watch- 
ed the boys enter the dining room first 
until the time when they take the 
boys home after dates this evening 
the girls have been "les gallants." 

The rules for today as set up by the 
Y. W. C. A. are as follows : 
All girls will: 

1. Hold all doors open for all boys ; 
2. Allow boys to proceed them into the 
dining hall, through doors, etc.; 3. 
Help boys put their coats on; 4. If 
walking with them, carry their books ; 
5. Ask boys to walk to the post and 
to Rec' hour; 0. Walk on the outside; 
7. Allow boys to proceed to the ad 
building after chapel; 8. Rise when 
boy enters a room; 9. Hold chair for 
boys at table; 10. Set-up if taking boy 
on date.

Sing In Final

On Tuesday, March 5, the last of 
the community concert series in Leba- 
non will be presented in the audi- 
torium of the High School. John Car-

The career of John Carter reads 
like the most fantastic of success 
stories. Two years of voice study, — 
a radio audition,— ifollowed by fame 
and fortune. Within less than a year 
he has been signed by the Metropoli- 
tan Opera Association, has won na- 
tionwide popularity on the radio, and 
gained sensational success in concert. 

John Carter was born in Brooklyn, 
New York. Although he had a fine 
natural singing voice and took part 
in glee club activities at school, he 
did not think seriously of a vocal 
career. His ambition was to become 
a civil engineer. 

During his college career, the de- 
pression came and he had to go to 
work. Then he would accept various 
singing engagements. Soon he real- 
ized that singing was playing an im- 
portant role in his life. He decided

Muhlenberg Downs 
Dutchmen To Snap 
4 Game Win Streak 

Valley Shows Effects 
Of Strenuous Schedule 

Attempting to mount a mule ired 
by five consecutive losses, the Flying 
Dutchmen really flew — off the Mule — 
to defeat, 47-25, at Allentown last 
Saturday night. 

Showing the effects of the Grey- 
hound race on Friday night, the Val- 
ieyites tired rapidly, while the vic- 
tory starved Julianites romped on to 
a comparatively easy win. 

Unable to keep up the pace set by 
the Muhlenberg team that was well 
rested, the Valley boys fell to the rear 
rapidly after gaining an early 3 to 
lead. After stopping the Mules' fast 
offense with a tight zone defense, the 
Dutchmen were forced to come out to 
stop the Allentown long shot artists. 

Holding a 10-6 lead at the quarter, 
Muhlenberg went on to increase its 
lead while they held L. V. scoreless 
in the second stanza, the first time 
that had been done to the Annville 
five this year. The score at half 
stood 16-G in the Mules' favor. 

Coming out fast after the rest per- 
iod, the Valley began to quickly creep 
up on Muhlenberg. A time out was 
called and the Blue and White again 
fell under the spell of fatigue, the re- 
sult proving disastrous to Lebanon 

The final period assumed the nature 
of 8 track meet with the reserves of 
both teams dashing madly up and 
down the floor. When the gun sound- 
ed; ending the game Muhlenberg held 
a 47- 29 lead. 

Ted Youse was the Blue and White 
hero of the day tallying eight points, 
and playing an excellent all around 
game to gain the plaudits of the Al- 
lentown fans. Don Staley helped the 
losing cause with seven points, doing 
his share to stave off defeat. 

Delphian Dance Successful 

by Feme Poet 
With the passing of the week-end 
one more pleasant memory has been 
added to the scores of others already 
stored up by the members of Delphian 
Literary Society, for their much an- 
ticipated anniversary dinner-dance is 
over. Dreamy, far-away looks may 
still be seen on a number of faces — 
fair and otherwise — , and many sighs 
of regret that such a delightful even- 
ing should have been so short may 
yet be heard. 

The idea of combining a dinner 
with the usual dance was new to the 
society this year and from all ap- 
pearances it met with the approval 
of all who attended — guests and 
friends, as well as present members 
and alumnae. The large mirrors, the 
classic Greek designs and figures on 
the walls of the ballroom lent added 
beauty to an already colorful gather- 
ing. The high quality of the food and 
the splendid service at the Harris- 
burger made the dinner all that it 
was hoped to be. Howard Gale's or- 
chestra playing music with varying 
degrees of smoothness, rhythm, and 

neter pleased the different tastes of 
all the dancers. The only criticism 
which should be offered concerns the 
size of the ballroom — it was much too 
small to accomodate the large number 
who wished to dance. 

Attractive white mother of pearl 
programs with gold lettering and 
cords were used. The favors, which 
were pins bearing the Lebanon Valley 
seal and a golden guard of the three 
Greek letters of the society, seemed 
to please all the escorts. 

Acting as chaperones with Dr. and 
Mrs. G. A. Richie were Dr. and Mrs. 
M. L. Stokes, who were kind enough 
to assume this responsibility in the 
absence of Dr. and Mrs. S. H. Derick- 
son. The flowers which decorated the 
faculty table at the dinner were sent 
to the Dericksons at the close of the 

Miss Rachel Holdcraft as annivers- 
ary president is to be congratulated 
on the huge success of the first din- 
ner-dance ever attempted by Delphian 
Literary Society. The committees per- 
formed their duties well, but only 
under her able direction.

. . . Look! Look! 

In the naive hope that at least a 
few people scan this editorial, the 
liberty is taken of calling to your at- 
tention the calendar in the adjoining 
column. Although it is comparatively 
small in itself, it represents no small 
achievement. During the past week 
the newly-formed Student Faculty 
Committee has drawn up a social cal- 
tndar for the remainder of the school 
year. LA VIE can only puff itself up 
proudly, slip thumbs in vest-pockets, 
and rejoice in general over the crown- 
ing result of a long and arduous agi- 
tation campaign. 

Congratulations justly belong to 
the Student-Faculty Committee and 
President Paul Horn. It is extreme 1 y 
comfortable to know that one's course 
is plotted for him, at a time when the 
poor Finns can't even call bombing 
raids with a fair degree of accuracy 
other than to be on the look-out con- 

. . . Come and Get It \ 

All psychologists agree that the 
food-seeking reaction is basic, but 
were they to visit North Hall at six 
o'clock p. m. they would speedily dash 
home and rewrite their texts, with the 
food-seeking business omitted. And 
who could censure them? 

The quaint dinner bell clangs loud 
enough to call forth Lazarus, and im- 
mediately the faculty members file 
into the dining hall through a two- 
foot space between a gauntlet of male 
students. Then, after a lengthy wait 
a few North Hall seniors peer cau- 
tiously over, the railing on the second 
floor, survey the gaping multitude be- 
low, and decide to come down after 
all. Meeting their South Hall and 
West Hall sisters at the foot of the 
stairs, all hands go into conference, 
finally decide that the faculty has 
gone by (it always has) and that it 
is safe for them to slip in too. 

By this time the juniors, or at least 
some of them, have gotten the idea 
and follow suit, although of course in 
a rather desultory way. Then, while 
the parade goes on — Horrors! ! an 
upperclassman appears, late because 
of the handicap of slower synapses or 
excessive time spent in what is known 
as "making up." Traffic is paralyzed 
and no one moves or even breathes 
until this late-comer is as far up to- 
wards the drum-major as she legally 
can be. 

So the divisions march by, until the 
unanimous sigh of relief from mas- 
culine throats indicates the end of the 
procession. Seniors start in — But 
shouts of "Faculty! Faculty!" freeze 
them in their tracks as two more gig- 
gling embarrassed girls proceed 
through the lane opened up for them. 

By this time male etiquette has 
been "spurlos versankt" in a sea of 
hunger pangs. Here the psychologists 
are vindicated, if anywhere. But can't 
something be done about it?

By Ira Asaph 
Ihe magazine section of the New 
York Times (that's the paper with no 
funnies) tells us that mighty queer 
things are going on among the heav- 
enly bodies this week, but the in- 
fluence seems to have missed L. V. 
this week, for any signs of upheaval 
among the campus stars are few and 
far between. 

One slight earthquake in North 
Hall on Monday afternoon has been 
reported. Some person or persons 
(the noncommital Ira again) with 
piano-moving instincts rearranged the 
Ware-Bordwell abode, mainly, we hear 
for the better equalization of terri- 

Seems like old times to see Cotton 
back on campus. Everyone, including 
Don, is glad she is extending her visit 
beyond Delphian. While on the Del- 
phian subject, here is the riddle of 
the week: What caused the returning 
Delph-escorts to set off the fire 
alarms in the Mens' Dorm? Answer: 
Fire-water! or ? ? 

More sidelights from the dance 
come in the form of a long-distance 
call for Mr. Baldwin. Not to be out- 
cone by lady-friend, President Bow- 
man, Dick received his publicity by 
being paged all over the ball room 
floor. Since Casey pleads innocent, 
you must have done it yourself, Dick. 

The arm of the law is long and the 
Jigger Board is now exercising jur- 
isdiction over that last outpost of 
iieedom of the mind and spirit where 
youth must be served, the Pennway. 
And wild and terrifying are the 
wrathful maledictions exhaled by 
xhose implicated upon their accuser's 
head. It appears that the Stool-Pig- 
eon (this is some one else's term, not 
Ira's) was so unwise as to boast of 
her evil, evil intentions in public. 

Bon Voyage to friend Chuck Urque- 
havt, whose illness not only rated him 
three nurses, but now a trip to Ber- 

To whom it may concern: I will no 
longer be responsible for bills con- 
tracted by anyone other than myself, 
and incidentally the item regarding 
me in Ira's column of last week is ab- 
solutely unfounded and untrue.

Ira is intrigued about this leap-year 
day, but isn't it carrying the idea a bit 
too far to make the girls carry books ? 
He doesn't remember ever having ren- 
dered that little service himself.

I. v. stage 

by Footlight 

Once again Footlight is back and 
with not too much to say. Now that 
the date for the production of "The 
Youngest" has been definitely set for 
March 29th rather than the 8th, the 
cast has several weeks more in which 
to add finishing touches. This exten- 
sion in time has naturally slowed down 
the rate cf progress; however, every 
rehearsal is bringing improvement. 

The greatest improvement can be 
noted in the first and third acts. Much 
still remains to be done in the second 
act. That act does present the most 
difficulty because the greater part of 
it is taken up by what might be term- 
ed s, mob scene. 

Rumor has it that Mary Grace 
Light, who incidentally is a charming 
maid, has been the means by which an 
additional performer can be found in 
the cast of characters. It seems a cat 
was called for in the script. So Mary 
Grace willingly volunteered hers. And 
every night after rehearsal she can 
be seen carrying her cat, walking 

Caroline Kissinger is certainly do- 
ing things with her part. She is mak- 
ing the heroine's part really the her- 
oine. And the same thing, in the mas- 
culine, can be said for Dick Baldwin, 
"The Youngest." The scene at the end 
of the first act when he wins the 
chance to take the heroine to the dance 
and his two older, would-be-sophisti- 
cated, brothers are left is really con- 

Barbara Bowman continues to reach 
a state of near-hysteria at every re- 
hearsal, it is too bad her part does 
not call for such sound effects. Mar- 
tha Davies has succeeded in throwing 
her old-woman voice out very dis- 

About the only comment about 
technicalities is that the cast as a 
whole lags slightly in cut-in lines. In 
the past two weeks the progress that 
has been made gives promise of a very 
successful, well-polished performance.

A few of L. V.'s graduates belong- 
ing to the Placement Bureau have ob-

Several months ago we read in the 
newspaper about Herr Hitler and his 
Blitzkrieg. In the last few weeks the 
Germans have been using another 
term for this war, which you can't 
find in either a German or an English 
dictionary, yet it is a word relevant 
to the kind of war now being fought 
on the Western front. The word is 
"Sitzkrieg," in other words a sitting- 
down war. 

Vast armies are facing one another 
on the western front, seemingly doing 
nothing; civilians at home find the in- 
action almost unendurable. But, the 
first thaws of spring have come to an 
area that has been frozen for weeks. 
Will this spring of 1940 be the time 
for a great offensive? 

Will Hitler strike in the West or in 
the East or will Great Britain break 
into action by a terrific blow in the 
West or, as events sum to point, in 
the East? The future has not seemed 
so vague for sometime, yet many au- 
thorities feel that the outcome of the 
war will be decided in the next few 


A very important, as well as inter- 
esting development for Americans has 
been the sending of Mr. Sumner 
Welles, Under-Secretary of State, to 
Europe to learn about the possibili- 
ties of peace. His aim apparently is 
not to foster any proposals for peace, 
but merely to listen in on some confi- 
dential chats of the dictators. One is 
reminded of a similar representative, 
Colonel House, who was sent by Pres- 
ident Wilson to test out the situation 
during the World War. We all know 
the results. 

At this writing, Welles has arrived 
at his first stopping place, Rome. 
Here he was received with a minimum 
of ceremony, and the Italian press ig- 
nored his visit. Will such be the at- 
titude of the other visits? Follow 
these visits closely, they'll probably be 
very interesting. 


A question of importance to the 
United States is the recent abroga- 
tion of the Japanese-United States 
Trade Treaty which was in effect from 
1911-1940. It is up to the American 
people to decide where America's eco- 
nomic interest in the Far East shall 
be. Shall the U. S. adopt a new and 
better treaty o r shall she aid China by 
stopping her trade with Japan?

Streak Broken As 
Moravian Downed 

Schillo Scores 20 Points 
As Artz Shows Up Well 

Lebanon Valley College downed the 
fast breaking Moravian Five last Fri- 
day night, 45-43, snapping the grey- 
hound streak of eleven straight and 
marking the Dutchmen's fourth con- 
secutive win. 

Schillo led the attack upon the 
Bethlehem hoys, tallying 20 markers, 
and playing a good floor game to back 
it up. Mease and Kubisen lent some 
able assistance to aid the winning 
cause, while Bobby Artz flashed some 
signs of his sophomore form by his 
agressive play in the short time that 
he saw action. 

With a Moravian band blowing 
martial strains across the arena, the 
Lebanon Valley five jumped into a 
quick lead. The lead was quickly nul- 
lified when the Greyhound foi-wards 
began looping in their long shots. 
When the Valley defense came out to 
stop them, the Moravian boys whip- 
ped the sphere to McConlogne under 
the bucket. When the first period was 
over Moravian held a 15-7 lead. 

The Dutchmen presented a practi- 
cally new outfit in the second quarter, 
a "d with Bobby Artz leading the Val- 
ley, they outscored Moravian 13-9 to 
bl % the half-time score to 24-20 in 
the Greyhound's favor. 

Lebanon Valley continued to out- 
Score Moravian in the final two stanz- 
as with Ed. Schillo doing the heavy

Frosh Drop Contest 
To Pine Tree Five 

The hapless Frosh quintet was 
again defeated by the Pine Tree Con- 
fectioners of Lebanon by the none too 
indicative score of 32-31. The score 
by no means gives a true picture of 
the type of game played as the Pine 
Tree five exerted no effort in winning 
the contest. During Jthe entire first 
quarter the Pine Tree second team 
ran up and down the floor to no avail 
as the Valley Frosh netted a total of 
seventeen points to lead 17-0 as the 
second period began. 

At this time the first team for the 
Confectioners composed of Frey, Bil- 
lett, Snell, Euston, and Smith took 
the floor and proceeded to toy with 
the Blue and White yearlings. Be 
fore much time had elapsed the Leb- 
anonites had come within striking dis- 
tance of the Valley five and the hair 
ended with L. V. Frosh ahead by 

During the entire second half the 
Pine Tree boys contented themselves 
with trying trick plays and stealing 
the ball from the Frosh five. Gollam, 
Matala and Martin supplied the scor- 
ing punch that enabled the Frosh to 
stay in the game, while Frey and Bil- 
lett excelled for the Pine Tree quintet. 

The game ended with a dramatic 
touch as Raymie Frey sat down for 
the last three seconds under the L. V. 
basket just after the Valleyites had 
scored. On the whole a good time was 
had by all. 

Junior Basketeers 
Preserve Clean Slate 

In a Dorm League game played last 
Thursday night, the loop-leading Jun- 
ior team kept their slate clean by 
handing the yearling team a 47-28 
set-back. The defending champions 
grabbed an 11-7 lead in the first per- 
iod and were never in danger thru- 
out the entire game. 

As usual Bentzel and Grow were the 
big guns of the third year men's of- 
fensive, while Shively and Detamble 
were the outstanding men for the 
Frosh. It was interesting to note the 
action of Conley, forward for the 
Junior team. While not seeming to be 
outstanding, he tossed them through 
the old hoop when they counted most 
and managed to hangup 12 points for 

An exhibition game followed the lea 
gue game and the team led by Bob 
Weilei, the Sophomore ace, defeated 
a team led by George Katchmer, 63- 
til. This contest was a wide open one 
with lots of action thrown in for good 
measure. Weiler collected 42 points 
for his aggregation, while Grabusky 
with 30 points led the Katchmerites

The winter activities of the women's 
athletic schedule is in full swing. An 
interesting survey was made by Miss 
Henderson concerning the number of* 
o-i ils interested in sports. From each 
class the percentage is more than half 
which speaks well for the women s'.ud- 
ents since the total for the entire 
school is 56.6% who take part in some 
activity. The actual figures are as

also being planned among which is

Seniors And Sophs 
Win In D. S. League 

Two nip and tuck battles took place 
last week in the Day Students' Bas- 
ketball League when the Seniors 
ramped over the Juniors to the tune 
of 42-30 and the Sophomores eked 
out a victory over the Frosh by a 
score of 36-34. Both games were 
roughly played and as usual Lynch 
left the fray via the personal foul 

The Seniors had difficulty in the 
first half and had gained only a 21-16 
lead at half-time. Gingrich and Ra- 
kow put up a game fight to keep theu- 
outfit in the running. Rozman and 
company went to work in the second 
half and managed to increase their 
margin of victory to 12 by the final 

Brubaker, Rozman, and Moody 
scored 12, 11, and -10 points respec- 
tively to lead the Seniors in the scor- 
ing columns. Gingrich racked up 12 
counters with 5 field goals and two 
fouls for the Juniors and was aided 
by Rakow who played his heart out 
for a losing cause. 

The other contest provided more 
thrills for the spectators when the 
Sophs came from behind to down the 
Frosh. Leading at half 21-15, the 
Frosh continued their scoring spree 
to gain a 27-18 advantage at the end 
of the third quarter. Boltz led the 
Sophs in the early part of this canto 
to cut the Frosh lead to 33-30. Three 
buckets in the last minute of play 
enabled the Sophs to defeat the Frosh 
by scoring as many points in the last 
period as in the other three. 

Boltz scored 17 points on 7 field 
goals and three charity tosses to lead 
the Soph scoring, while Lentz dropped 
18 counters through the hoops to score 
more than half the Frosh points.

By Digitus 

At the installation of the Day Stud- 
ent Congress, Dr. Lynch produced 
quite an effect upon the boys when he 
referred to them as "gentlemen." Why 
to have heard the gulp that Bill Ben- 
der gave as he looked up suddenly, 
one would have thought that the men 
from the "under-ground cave" were 
not entitled to the title. 

The other afternoon, Bert entered 
the "Chem Lab" and with usual quiet 
manner began to operate upon one of 
the radiators with his wrench. One 
of the student chemists glanced up 
from his work and anxiously inquir- 
ed, "What's the matter, Bert? Didn't 
Dr. Bender pay his rent?" 

Well, I still see that Howard Paine 
is allergic to blondes. The little lady 
he met on his Glee Club visit to Dal- 
lastown was certainly not an ugly 
duckling. Although, the frosh claims 
that it was just another date, we 
question his integrity. However, How- 
ard, we do know that somewhere in 
the city of Lancaster, someone cares. 
The letters that you and "Lefty '' Lit- 
tle write to "the ones" in that city are 
certainly filled with a number of 
Greek terms, which, if saved by the 
lasses, might cause you to blush some 

After describing the vast destruc- 
tion that was wrought upon the South 
by Sherman's Drive to the Sea, Dr. 
Shenk asked the class what they 
thought a group of college students 
would have done in a similar circum- 
stance. One member of the class ac- 
quainted with collegiate agitation pip- 
ed up, "We would certainly have done 
a better job." 

Sorry to bring up another snow 
story, but they tell me that Orval 
Kiopp, a "conserve" artist, trudged 
through three miles of country dmts 
to Myerstown. When he reacned that 
city, he changed from those soaked 
articles of clothing to dry ones which 
he carried in a suitcase. Despite his 
three mile ordeal, he failed to get 
transportation to Annvihe; so lie 
changed back to his waiKing suit and 
returned to his home after another 
three mile trudge. Snail we cail Or- 
val a conscientious scholar 'I — or a 
darn fool? 

A Glee Club Tour can mean so much 
to some of us, but to Harold Wild it 
means that there are days of roman- 
tic problems ahead of him. Before he 
departed on ihe trip he loved a cer- 
tain lass, but when he returned he dis- 
covered that he still was devoted to 
her as well as to another. Now Har- 
old knows as well as you or I that 
only one will do, but oh! what to do".' 

Kantor's nose saved his stomach 
when he discovered before he bit into 
the egg found in his lunch that it was 
not a home product, but rather one 
that had been careluily shelled so as 
to conceal its three months embryo- 
logicai identity. One oi Mate s menus 
thought oi him when he was looking 
in the incubator. However, this was 
miid compared to the photographs ox 
several nudes that some agita.or plac- 
ed in his empty lunch box last year. 
Nate certainly had a time explaining 
to his mother when she opened his 
lunch box the next morning. 


At Tuesday's Senate meeting a new 
rule was drawn up to the effect that 
the referee in each game shall not be 
a member of either class participat- 
ing in that game. The following sche- 
dule revision was also made: 
Feb. 29 — Seniors vs. Frosh 
March 2 — Seniors vs. Sophs

Seniors Defeat Sophs 
In Return Engagement 

The Seniors won their second game 
in four starts on Tuesday evening as 
they defeated the Sophomores 53-37. 
The second year men were without 
the services of their aces, Bob Weilei 
and Joe Carr, and failed to give th;. 
upper-classmen much competition. 

The contest was a return engage- 
ment to take the place of the exhibi- 
tion game staged on Saturday after- 
noon in which the Seniors were de- 
feated 63-61 when Bob Weiler racked 
up a total of 42 points for the Sophs 
as Grabusky and Katchmer netted 30 
and 25 points respectively for the Sen-

His first major triumph came two 
years later when he was chosen out 
of 707 aspirants for the Metropolitan 
Auditions Award. This announcement 
brought him many offers. From these, 
he accepted the Chase and Srnborn 
offer to fill Nelson Eddy's role while 
he was on concert tour. 

Thus John Carter, practically un- 
known, stepped into the program a 
favorite hour of millions and made a 
success. Radio columnists acclaimed 
his voice and personality. Many con- 
cert engagements followed and John 
Carter has gained a prominent place 
in the musical world. 

Helen Olheim, the second artist in 
the concert is an American by birth. 
As a student at the Eastman School 
of Music, she won two scholarships 
and later as one of the leading mem- 
bers of the American Opera Company, 
sang with that organization on tours 
with outstanding success.

Senate Delegates 
Attend Conference 

Bell, Rapp Represent 
L. V. At State College 

Last week, March 1, 2, and 3, the 
Student Government Convention of 
Pennsylvania Colleges and Universi- 
ties met at Pennsylvania State Col- 
lege. The Men's Senate was repre- 
sented by Richard Bell, secretary of 
that body, while the Day Student Sen- 
ate sent Robert Rapp. Over 75 stud- 
ents attended from 25 colleges and 
universities of the state. 

The aim of this convention was to 
establish an association of the student 
governments of the colleges and uni- 
versities of Pennsylvania. The pur- 
pose of such an association is not only 
to benefit existing student govern- 
ments, but also to aid in organizing 
student self-government bodies in col- 
leges and universities which do not 
have systems now. This conference 
was the initial step to the realization 
of that association. 

The convention opened Friday noon 
with an informal luncheon, in which 
the representatives were made ac- 
quainted with Penn State and various 
of its officers. Immediately thereafter 
the convention group discussed cer- 
tain phases of student government, 
its structure, conduct, participation, 
and financial problems.

bols of St. Patrick's day are being- 
employed. As chaperones there will 
be Dr. and Mrs. Amos H. Black, Pro

At sundry times in the past La Vie 
has found occasion to treat the mat- 
ter of scoops. Another such occasion 
has arisen, but this time we are proud 
of it. Strange as it may seem, there 
is nothing to complain about — quite 
to the contrary. 

In a way it is unnecessary to call 
attention to the May Queen story. It 
is the biggest scoop of the year, and 
La Vie is proud of having secured it. 
In a larger sense it represents the 
fulfillment of a resolve made last 
year, after another May Queen elec- 
tion, or rather after the treacherous 
betrayal of the results of that elec- 
tion. No more need be said concern- 
ing details and participants to upper- 
classmen, and any curious frosh can 
ask them. 

Then too, La Vie is happy to be the 
first to announce the selection of this 
year's baseball coach, as well as the 
newly-elected members of Phi Alpha 
Epsilon. As has been affirmed at 
other times, this is as it should be. 
The college press is grateful for the 
cooperation of the people who made 
these stories possible. It is not nec- 
essary to mention names, for they 
know who they are. Their efforts are 
fully appreciated. Thank you!

. . . Let There Be Light 

The development of artifical light 
is one of the most fascinating stories 
of history. The barbarian's torch, 
the open fat lamp of the Greeks, the 
kerosene lantern, and the gas light 
have come and gone; and each has 
been an improvement on the last, un- 
til today the latest is found in non- 
glare polarized light. Indirect light- 
ing is the accepted thing, for comfort 
and convenience. 

However, if an I. E. S. lamp should 
by chance stray into Lebanon Valley's 
library, he would imagine himself 
back in the Middle Ages, hide his 
head in shame, and wonder to him- 
self, "Can this be?" Yes, it can, and 
is. Plainly, the library's lighting sys- 
tem is antiquated. The only practical 
benefit of the present lights to the 
students is to dissipate the gloom suf- 
ficiently so they can avoid colliding 
with each other, in the manner of a 
London blackout, to cast long sha- 
dows, especially on books they are 
using, and to gently lull them to sleep, 
ably seconded by the tropical heat 
ever pouring out of the radiators. 

Small wonder that the library 
serves more as a social center than as 
a house for study and research. Study 
is surely discouraged, and although 
conditions at night are worse than in 
the daytime, the latter is by no means 
beyond improvement. 

Three or four modern table lamps 
placed on each table would practically 
solve all lighting difficulties. It has 
been tried elsewhere and proved en- 
tirely successful. Perhaps the only 
complete way to solve all library pro- 
blems would be a new library. 

£Daiy Studentettes 

By Wanda Ride 
Every time Wanda aims to make 
any weather predictions, the weather 
goes haywire, but at last she's found 
a never-failing harbinger of spring. 
You recall that old adage that goes: 
"In the springtime a young man's fan- 
cy turns to what the women have been 
thinking about all winter." Well, it 
seems that all these Freshmen who 
have been casting only shy glances at 
the opposite sex, are now breaking 
through with something really worlh 
being whispered about. If you don't 
comprehend, just ask Mary Ellen 
Klopp about the romantic note she re- 
ceived from her economic geography 
class Romeo, then see Marian Kreider 
about her very welcome ( ? ) invita- 
tion to a certain formal coming up 
shortly. Tch-tch! Spring and Cupid 
must be in cahoots. 

There are two day studentettes who 
have recently begun to develop a 
method of detective-ing. Their idea 
is to disclose the identity of Wanda 
Ride. Maybe she should be very care- 
ful for a while — at least until Betty 
Johns, and Louise Bowman have spent 
their anger (stirred up by a mere 
hint in this column) elsewhere. 

Once again ladylike manners were 
cast aside for the more primitive 
practice of physical competition via 
the route of passing ball, thanks to 
the fact that Lela Lopes did not eat 
the orange in her lunch. When the 
orange was beyond the po:nt of being 
appetizing, Lela recovered her lost 

Every now and then the D. S. R. 
loses one of its members to the Con- 
servatory. The latest less is that of 
Ruth Wix. In spite of the fact that 
we do miss Ruthie, all of us under- 
stand the situation perfectly. What 
is the D. S. R.'s loss is J.'s gain. 

You folks that neglect the sports 
section of La Vie Ccllegienne don't 
know that the W. D. S. team is, as 
yet, undefeated. For this bit of rec- 
ognition we must thank those untiring 
basketeers from the dignified senior 
class to the lowly freshmen. Among 
the stars are Anna Evans, Betty Ann 
Rutherford, Fredricka Laucks, Betty 
Johns, Mary Klopp and the Kreider

#25,000,000 - ACTUAL *O.OOl 

tJ id I) its 

by Ira Asaph 
Although many of my deah, deah 
readers may think that Ira is one of 
those people whose only claim to 
learning is 'I read a book,' the fact 
remains that there is a decidedly eru- 
dite streak in his poor harassed soul, 
so perhaps he may be forgiven if he 
comments on Robert Nathan's latest, 
Portrait of Jennie. One of the more 
interesting ideas advanced by Mr. 
Nathan is that woman (generic, as in 
Phil 32) should exemplify the etern- 
al. In other words a woman should 
be timeless. Contrary to the author's 
opinion that the modern woman is 
lacking in this quality, it is Ira's im- 
pression that it is mainly because of 
a lack of the sense of time in the 
female make-up that we find so many 
of the campus boys catching a few 
million winks in the various dorm 
parlors while waiting for that etern- 
al date. 

A little sidelight from Tuesday 
night's game. The Albright frosh 
piled up points so fast that the Al- 
bright coach was forced to take 
motion pictures of the score-board to 
keep track of the game. 

In case you've missed Casey around 
campus this week, he is convalescing 
at the Seylar home, and Flippy re- 
ports "He is doing nicely, thank you." 
While Casey recovers from what must 
have been a strenuous week-end, Ev 
leaves him to the tender mercies of 
la famille and returns to ye well- 
known grind. 

To Betty Foster we dedicate a 
branch of olive * for being the most 
blind-dated girl on campus. Suspect- 
ing that such an honor was not un- 
deserved, Ira delved into the matter 
Saturday night and discovered that 
the Temple belle's (no pun intended) 
glib tongue (alias gift of gab) is as 
protective as a coat of mail sans can 
opener, and twice as wearing. 

It is rumored that West Hall's re- 
gular Sunday evening tea got some- 
what out of hand when Evelyn Miller 
read her contribution to the Dorm's 
diary. From the hysteria that follow- 
ed, Ev's little boomshell seemed to be 
an outlet for suppressed emotions. 

Design for living a la Daugherty: 
A girl should always have someone to 
fall back on. Taere is always Pug un- 
less someone else shows up.

ally, they stood all expenses, and it 
is horrible to think that three of them 
actually walked out without paying 
the bill! (Of course they beat a quick 
letreat to redeem themselves.) Some 
of the ladies called for their gentle- 
men in automobiles, and, carrying out 
all details to a T, even demonstrated 
their one-arm-driving technique. (Ac- 
curacy of this statement may be test- 
ed by questioning a certain tall North 
Hall lassie.) 

Mealtime offered another problem 
of interest, for, entering the room 
last, the girls were greeted by such 
overwhelming strains of "Let Me Call 
You Sweetheart" that they forgave 
the men for showing their opinion of 
how they go into the dining hall. It 
is also of note that certain young "la- 
dies" harboring the intention of trip- 
ping some of the men as they passed 
caught Miss Darnell instead. What a 
mistake ! 

Perhaps one of the top errors of the 
day took place at breakfast, when 
George Munday showed the epitome 
of masculine ingratitude. It so hap- 
pens that as the South Hall miss, 
Bobby Herr, who really went in for 
the masculine part in a big way by 
Avearing a shirt and tie, began to pull 
rut the chair in preparation for help- 
ing George to seat himself, that towei 
of humanity, forgetting the day, turn- 
ed about and began to deliver a lec- 
ture about the evils of stealing chairs 
in the dining hall. It was George s 
opinion that since he was there first 
he was entitled to that place. Ima- 
gine how he felt when he found out! 

All in all, the day was turned into 
a "Comedy of Errors," and both the 
men and women of L. V. have begun 
to think that they're rather lucky be- 
ing what they are after all. 

Leading the list of over-cutters to 
date is imported model, Kenny Baker. 
Ken is a fine example of the old adage, 
"Class is the place to go after all the 
other places are closed." 

For quite some time Ira has noticed 
that our little recluse, Bobbie Breen 
is showing decidedly social tendencies, 
at least in the direction of Ruthie 
Hemingway. Come spring, who 
knows, he may doff his hermit's garb 
(hair shirt, et al) to partake of the 
glittering pleasures of this world. Oh, 
the wiles and snares of womankind! 

Ursinus Tramp| e J

Kubisen Standout 
Player As Team 
Functions Smoothly 

Looping the sphere th rou?] 
hoop with exciting rapidity and J ^ 
taking accuracy, the L. V. C t} 
unleashed their grade "A" 
basketball in the last quarter " 
pletely rout the Ursinus Bear 7°*'' 
last Saturday night. ' H 

The rout was not accomplish 
til the final stanza when Ed 6 

on assistance by Mease, tossed " 
of rapid-fire deuces to clinch th 
gument and to hasten the den/ **' 
zation of the Bear attack. ali ' 

Lebanon Valley started i n i ts 
manner by assuming an early H 
Staley and Mease doing the comT 
Ursinus called a time out to get f 
bearing and to take a good l 0o k 
the line-up so that they might be 
tain that they were playing our ]2. 
Dutchmen. They rapidly m ade ' 

their mind and went to work tn « 

. w even 

up the score, causing a 9-9 tie at tl 
end of the first ten minutes. 

The Valley again came out first in 
the second period to assume a sho't 
lead on some cleverly set up pl ays 
Schillo and Kubisen doing the honors 
Kubisen worked nicely under both bas 
kets to be the chief retriever of the 
evening. Mease added a deuce to the 
cause, but it was not enough to make 
up the deficit as the Bears countered 
six field goals, Kuhn contributing two, 
and two fouls to assume a 23-21 ad- 
vantage at the halfway mark. 

Stung by the verbal lashings of 
Coach Intrieri, the Blue and White 
boys began to hit on all fours tossing 
in goals from all angles, while Ursi- 
nus tried desperately to stem the 
flow of points. Kubisen, playing 
like a demon, assumed command, 
taking the ball on the rebound 
and cleverly advancing it into for- 
eign territory, and climaxing his 
feats by ringing up six points. Staley 
on a solo dash, counted a two-point" 
followed by Mease's field goal. Staley 
scored another, while Schillo found 
time to chalk up three charity tosses. 

Holding a 37-34 lead, the Valley 
fired both barrels to down the Bears. 
Schillo counted three field goals in 26 
seconds to start the parade. On an 
out-of-bounds play, Mease flipped the 
sphere to Schillo who dunked it io P 
basket. Another pass, Mease to Schii- 
lo, accounted for another field g» 
Intercepting a pass, Schillo dribW" 
in for his final goal. Staley c° n 5 
buted two pokes to the barrage, 
bisen put one in from under the JJUL U1IC 111 il'UIIl UI1UCJ. — 

ket, and Mease pegged one through ^ 
thirty paces. Ursinus completely, 
feated could do nothing but watch ' 
rwe as the Blue and White h»T 
hoop. The final figures told the t». 
L. V. C, 53; Ursinus, 41. 

Coach Intrieri sent in an enth' e 
team in the last couple min uteS ' ^ 
Ursinus could do nothing about 
ing held scoreless while the 
could score nothing also. 

Schillo and Kubisen were hig 1 ^ 
with 14 points each, while Sta^ j; 
Mease came next with 13 f 1 ^. 
counters respectively. Youse, al1 

failing to score, played an 
ing backcourt game earning ^ , 
dits accorded him. Schillo tur» j. 

the P 

the most spectacular perform ^ 
ly aided by Mease who re P 
passed away possible shots to 
mates better situated. 


The most steadying inflvienc 
floor was Kubisen who played j p

than fourth.

Eastern Pennsylvania Collegiate Bas-

tal to 135 for the season in league 
competition. This gave him a plural-

the Lebanon Valley its eighth indi-

Ullery A\nnouncd 
As Baseball Coach 

New Diamond Mentor Is 
Penn State Grad, '23 

At a regular meeting of the Athlet- 
ic Council on Tuesday afternoon Will- 
iam Ullery, Penn State '23, was rec- 
ommended as a candidate for head 
coach of baseball at Lebanon Valley 
for the 1940 season. Ullery played 
freshman baseball as a first baseman 
at Penn State after which he played 
in varsity competition for three years 
being captain his Senior year. He 
spent the season of 1923 as a profes- 
sional player for the St. Louis Browns 
falo and lives in Huntingdon, Pa. 

Ullery also played with Buffalo, N. 
Y., in the International League, El- 
mira in the New York-Penn League 
and spent one year with Danville, 
111., of the Three I League. He is now 
on the voluntary retired list via Buf- 
for the 1940 season. 

His coaching career has included 
positions at Conemaugh, H. S., Cone- 
maugh, Pa., and Beckley Business Co 1 - 
lege at Harrisburg, Pa. He spent sev- 
en years at Susquehanna University 
as head coach and has coached and 
managed the Rockview prison baseball 
team at Bellefonte, Pa., for four sum- 

Junior Team Holds 
Overwhelming Lead 


W. L. Pet. 

Juniors 7 1.000 

Frosh 3 4 .428 

Seniors 2 4 .333 

Sophs 1 5 .167 

In three games played last week the 
Dorm Interclass Basketball League 
advanced that much closer to comple- 
tion of its schedule with little change 
in the standings of the teams. The 
Juniors continued in the unchallenged 
bid for the championship as they de- 
feated the Frosh on Saturday 47-43. 
The Sophs finally managed to win a 
contest as they defeated the Seniors 
39-33 in a very rough contest also on 

On Thursday evening the scrappy 
Frosh five defeated the Seniors 30-28 
in another roughly played encounter. 
The Seniors lead most of the way in 
this game but lost in the last few 
minutes with Shively and Detamble 
leading the Frosh attack with twelve 
and ten points respectively. Katchmer 
and Walk with ten and eight counters 
led the upper-classmen's offense. 

The Sophomore four finally restor- 
ed to full strength succeeded in win- 
ning their first league victory as Bob 
Weiler and Joe Can- scored sixteen 
and eleven points respectively. The 
second half play of Chris Walk fea- 
tured for the Seniors as he scored 
twenty tallies during the contest al- 
though he left the game early in the 
fourth period via the personal foul 

The Juniors got off to a slow start 
and were behind 25-14 at halftime but 
finished strong to defeat the Frosh, 
47-43. The sensational shooting of 
Barney "Ace" Bentzel was the high 
spot of the contest as he rang up 28 
points to lead the Juniors attack. This 
gives Bentzel a total of 143 points in 
seven contests. 

Carter In Chapel 

John Carter, Metropolitan tenor 
who appeared on the Community Con- 
cert in Lebanon Tuesday evening, was 
a feature of the chapel program yes- 
terday morning. He sang The Cradle 
Song by Mozart, Foster's beloved I 
Dream of Jeanie With the Light 
Brown Hair, and responded to loud ap- 
peals for an encore with The Donkey 
Serenade. He was accompanied by 
Prof. Merl Freeland. 

Valley Tops Lions 
In Last Loop Game 

Youse Is High Scorer 
As Mease Clinches Title 

Flashing, brilliant second half at- 
tack that left the Albright Lions be 
wildered and amazed, Lebanon Valley 
College closed its season on Tuesday 
with a 47-40 win and finished up the 
campaign with a .571 average. 

To place the Valley in a spot in the 
league standing would be impossible 
until the final loop contests are played 
because it is never known what team 
is where in the league, they change so 

It was a dark horse that led the 
Blue and White to victory. Hitherto 
unheard from, Youse cut loose to toss 
the sphere through the net with un- 
erring accuracy. He was given excel- 
lent aid by Mease, who virtuall y 
clinched the scoring title of the 
league. Perhaps the most outstand : ng 
was Steve Kubisen who was in on ev- 
ery play taking the ball off both back- 
boards and still finding time to toss 
up 11 counters. 

Lebanon Valley presented its usual 
first half attack scoring rapidly in 
the first few minutes, Mease tallying 
first. Albright came back strong to 
overtake the Dutchmen, and to gain a 
slight lead. Mease tallied his second 
goal in the second period, giving him 
the scoring lead in the league, and 
causing the fans to go wild. Tossing 
through two more, the Valley was 
behind at half 21-19. 

The third period was the start of 
the fireworks. With Youse and Ku- 
bisen scoring like an adding machine, 
the Valley went into a lead that the 
Lions could never overcome. The Blue 
and White tallied 21 points while the 
defense did an excellent job holding 
down the Albright, forwards who could 
score only nine markers. The Red and 
White put on a desperate bid in the 
last stanza, but L. V. was not one to 
be overtaken, holding off all bids and 
emerging the victor, 47-40. 

The game was rough; but cool, calm 
and collected Kubisen kept the boys 
together while Mease and Youse did 
the heavy duty ably assisted by Ku- 


Coach Jerry Frock announced the 
1940 baseball schedule on Tuesday 
which includes a total of thirteen 
games with seven to be played on the 
home field in Annville. Besides the six 
league games on the program seven 
other contests have been arranged for

On Saturday the girls honor squad 
journeyed to Cedar Crest College in 
Allentown to participate in another 
basketball play day. 

In the morning the Valley played 
Moravian College and won from them 
3C-9. In this game Louise Saylor was 
the outstanding player scoring 19 of 
her team's 30 points. 

The home team's afternoon game 
was played with Cedar Crest College. 
This proved to be the most exciting 
and best played game of the day. At 
the end of the third quarter, the score 
was 11-10 in favor of L. V. C. but 
during the last quarter the Cedar 
Crest team rallied to score the win- 
ning nine points.

Holding on to the tail of the March 
lion, we find ourselves jolted into an- 
other month. But as we flip back the 
page of the calendar, the Easter va- 
cation is upon us like a flash. All 
this is very joyful, but think of the 
stretch between the post-Easter and 
"exams"; and you, too, shall probably 
become pessimistic if you remember 
the spring. 

If George Smee thinks that by hid- 
ing in the "Chem Lab" he has escap- 
ed tho pen of your reporter, he is 
sadly mistaken. Nearly every person 
is aware that George is really a chem- 
ist, but as a private instructor we 
were ignorant. When one sees his 
prized pupil, a fair nurse from the 
capital city, we are inclined to ques- 
tion if the discussions are strictly 
chemistry. I am told that he sings 
"Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair" 
with more feeling than before, as he 
goes about his daily tasks and flasks. 

Taking advantage of the absence of 
Dr. Derickson, Leo Feinstein decided 
to neglect his anatomical study of the 
cat in order to engage in other pur- 
suits. However, his reports and 
drawings were missed by the good 
doctor, and so the other day Leo re- 
ceived a post card that startled him. 
On the back of the card was pasted 
a newspaper cartoon of a man shoot- 
ing a cat that had been causing an 
unwelcomed midnight disturbance on 
the back fence. In the corner of the 
cartoon was written, "Go get him, 
Leo," signed "Prof. Derry." Could 
anyone devise a more tactful way of 
telling a student to get back on the 

Now, boys, you shall have to mind 
your "P's and Q's" because Ted Pow- 
ell has extended his high school teach- 
ing to the realms of the "den." If 
you "ain't" correct in your English 
pronunciation and usage of words and 
phrases, you are subjected to correc- 
tion at the hands of the master stud- 
ent teacher. Please do not become 
piqued at this treatment, because it 
is part of the adolescence of "teacher 
hood' ; and we musi all do our pari 
for the betterment of society. 

Notice to Tom Fox: Please get an 
other song besides "Oh! Johnny!" be- 
cause you are slowly driving your fel- 
low students "nuts." Even iNave Kan- 
tor, who has tne voice of a certain 
species of amphibian, at least can 
give us a varie.y in songs in so iai 
as the words go. 

"All work and no play makes Jau 
a very dull boy ' is a bewhiskereu 
saying, but would some oae expiain 
that presidential smile of Sammy 
Grim's. It is known that when this 
youth is not pouring over books, he is 
behind a local drug store counter 
working. Now I may be wrong, but 
he surely finds a little time to squeeze 
in dates with a certain luscious bit ot 
Annville's femininity. 

Have you seen that "petite" blond 
that drives from Lebanon to AmmUe 
practically every evening in order to 
pick up her big handsome woundea 
man, Sterling Kleiser. 

Stouffer Smith, a Pennway boy, is 
now more commonly known as the 
"pie man." Stoutfer had an eye to bus- 
iness when he saw that the man crav- 
ed a morsal of something before noon. 
Pies and cakes are much better than 
a Shipiro's nickel-vanishing candy ma- 
chine. As your business grows 
"Smitie" be careful of the credit sys-

nearly landed in "debtors' prison." 

If any one fellow becomes a "Van- 
ishing American" on the campus, you 
can safely guess that the magnetic 
pull of a 0. C. B. (off-campus babe) 
is responsible. Brad Long is a typ- 
ical Romeo. Older students will re- 
member that this ministerial student 
sent many a co-eds heart a patter- 
ing, but now the only time one sees 
him is when he doesn't cut his classes. 

All Teams Active 
In Debate Program 

The season's debating program is 
now in full swing for both men's and 
women's teams, with the former be-

Last night debaters Carl Ehrhart 
and Paul Horn upheld the affirmative 
side of the question that the basic 
guilt for the present European war 
rests with the Allies. The opposition

The question of American adoption 
of a strict isolationist policy in for- 
eign affairs will be the subject for a 
radio debate tomorrow night over- 
station WKBO, at 9:30 o'clock. Rob- 
ert Mays and Donald Bartley will up- 
hold the affirmative side for Lebanon 
Valley against Franklin and Marshall- 
Lebanon Valley will again go on 
the air Saturday afternoon over sta-

Horn and Ehrhart will debate on the 
negative side of this question. 

Returning to action next week Mo- 
ravian will be met in debate Tuesdry 
evening, March 12, and Wagner Col- 
lege, of Staten Island, N. Y., the fol- 
lowing evening, March 13. Florbn 
Cassady and Donald Bartley will rep- 
resent Lebanon Valley against the 
former school, speaking for the nega- 
tive side of the war guilt question. 
Against Wagner on the affirmative 
side of the isolation problem will be 
Florian Cassady and Robert Mays. 

All these debates will be non-deci- 
sion affairs, although there is the pos- 
sibility of a poll being taken by tele- 
phone calls in the case of the rad ; o 

The first women's debate of the 
season was held Tuesday afternoon in 
Delphian Hall against Ursinus Col-

Rutherford. Esther Kumjan and 
Joyce Loionies supported the negative 
side for Ursinus. A return debate

Abating at home. 

religious news 

Last Sunday evening in spite of the 
Jownpour of rain a fine audience was 
present for the worship service con- 
ducted by the Life Work Recruits in 
bhe United Brethren Church. Special 
music was given on the violin by Vic- 
toria Turco. Lucille Esbenshade had 
charge of the devotions. It was 
Foreign Mission Day in the United 
Brethren Churches, so that it was 
quite appropriate to have William 
Jenkins, a prospective medical mis- 
sionary, as the speaker. 

He used as his subject Making Re- 
ligion Real in One's Life. The thought 
of the sermon centered around the 
Scripture taken from Micah, "Do just- 
ly, love kindness, and walk humbly 
with thy God." One's personal life 
should consist of righteous living, 
following the policies of a good neigh- 
bor, and be in humble obedience to 

* * * * 

The Life Work Recruits will take 
charge of the evening service at the 
New Cumberland Community Church 
on March 10. Samuel Stoner will be 
the speaker of the evening and Haven 
Kessel will officiate. The music will 
be supplied by Marguerite Martin, 
who will render a vocal solo. 

Community Concert 
Ends Local Season 

The series of Lebanon Community 
concerts came to a close on Tuesday 
night when Helen Olheim, mezzo so- 
prano, and John Carter, tenor, ap- 
peared in a joint recital before a rec- 
ord audience in the high school audi- 

Mr. Carter's pleasing stage person- 
ality and the singing quality of his 
i oice won the audience to his favor. 
His rendition of Foster's immortal ' I 
Dream of Jeanie With the Light 
Brown Hair" was especially liked. 

Miss Olheim appeared recently in 
the Metropolitan Opera performance 
f "Die Walkure" as one of the Rhine 
maidens. Her performance on Tues- 
day was marked by her tendency to 
dramatize. This was especially evi- 
dent in the popular Habanera from 
Carmen by Bizet, in Leoni's "A Little 
China Figure," and in "My Johann' 
by Grieg. 

Both artists sang together in duets 
from two of Verdi's operas, "II Tro- 
vatore" and "Aida." 

Senate Delegates 
Attend Conference 

(Continued from Page 1) 

University Club that evening Mr. 
Leon Schloss, editor of the Washing- 
ton Bureau of the International News 
Service, spoke on "A Newspaperman's 
View of College Student Govern- 
ments." He built up a terminology of 
student government stating certain 
things which he would look for in 
such an organization. Student govern- 
ments of each college differed, some 
schools very conservative while others 
quite liberal, so that it was necessary 
to start with a common idea in order 
to understand each other during the 

Miss Ray, Dean of Women, Penn- 
sylvania State College, gave a glimpse 
into "Looking Ahead in Student Go- 
vernment." The trend is for college 
faculties and boards to recognize 
more and more the student govern- 

Other outstanding speakers were 
Colonel Ambrose R. Emery, R. O. 
T. C, Pennsylvania State College, Dr. 
Ralph D. Hetzel, president of Penn- 
sylvania State College, and Rev. John 
H. Frizzell, College Chaplain. 

Saturday morning was devoted en- 
tirely to round table discussions. The 
delegates of Lebanon Valley College 
attended the meetings on Fraternity 
and Non-Fraternity Relations in Stu- 
dent Government and Student-Faculty- 
Administrative Relations. In the latter 
meeting Mr. Bell discussed the Stud- 
ent-Faculty system that we have re- 
cently inaugurated. Of the other sys- 
tems presented at the round table 
meeting, none had a finer set-up of 
student and faculty cooperation than 
the one in operation at Lebanon 
Valley College. Bucknell University 
has a very similar plan, and these 
two systems were highly praised by 
the conference. 

At appropriate intervals during the 
three days, periods of relaxation and 
sport were available. After each ses- 
sion or discussion period entertain- 
ment was provided in the form of 
music, movies, or magic. The Student 
Government formal dance was held 
on the first evening. Reports from 
the delegates are that the Penn State 
girls fulfilled their part of the enter- 
tainment in the good old Leap Year 
spirit. Saturday afternoon the con- 
ference was guest of Penn State at 
the Penn State- Syracuse swimming 
meet and the Penn State-Cornell box- 
ing bouts. That evening after the 
Penn State-University of Pittsburg 
basketball game, an informal party 
was given at the D" ydock Nite Club. 

Hershey Tops Frosli 
In Close Contest 

Playing a return engagement with 
the Hershey Junior College five on 
Saturday evening, the Lebanon Val- 
ley Frosh quintet lost their eighth 
contest in ten starts as they bowed 
39-33. The previous encounter with 
the Hershey team in the chocolate 
town resulted in a 39-37 triumph for 
the Junior College in a very spirited 
contest. The game on Saturday was 
equally as exciting as neither team 
was further in the lead than in the 
final score. At halftime the score read 
17-15 with the Hersheyites on top. 

The inability of the players of both 
teams to stay on their feet was the 
chief note of interest in the contest. 
The slippery condition of the floor had 
much to do with the type of game 
played, as each team tried to get rid 
of the ball as soon as possible. Both 
teams were on the verge of fistic en- 
counters with each other on several 
occasions, but nothing of importance 
developed much to the disappointment 
f .t the fans. 

Gollam led the Valley offense as he 
counted 14 points. Martin and Silli- 
man followed with seven and five 
counters respectively. Matala played 
an excellent defensive game. The of- 
fensive play of Miller, the center of 
the Hershey team, was outstanding as 
he dented the cords for 19 points. 
Schaeffer and Seavers were runners- 
up with seven points each. 

Three Veterans Survive 
In Hand Ball Tourney 

The Day Students handball tourna- 
ment has reached the final stages of 
play with three seasoned veterans sur- 
viving the early rounds. 

Joe Gittler, an ambidexterous 
Junior, defeated Hess to enter the 
final round. Another third year man 
that survived the early competition is 
Bob Breen who was extended to the 
limit by Shay. Beamesderfer, the sole 
remaining Senior won a hard fought 
battle from Rakow in a match that 
had both contestants hanging on the 
walls for support. 

Chapel Hears Chorus 
Of Industrial School 

On Friday, March 1, the Boys' 
Chorus from the Hershey Industrial 
School presented a concert during an 
extended chapel period. George Yo- 
kum, one of our own graduates, direct- 
ed the chorus. This is his first year 
there and he has done excellent work 
with the boys, 

The program opened with the 
chorus of forty voices singing a group 
of sacred songs. 

I. "We Thank Thee O God" Sykes 

"Vesper Hymn Bortmauski 

"Praise to the Lord" 
"Prayer of Thanksgiving" 

Following this opening group, Tom 
Reker sang two tenor solos. 
"O Master Let Me Walk With Thee" 
"Songs My Mother Taught Me" 

The chorus then continued with a 
group of secular songs : 

"Deep River" a negro spiritual 

"Hymn To Pennsylvania" Leiby 

This hymn was written by a man 

from Harrisburg 
"Dance My Comrades" Bennett 

Three hymns from the school's 
hymnal were then presented: 
"God of Our Father" 
"Break Thou the Bread" 
"Are Ye Able." 

One of the younger boys, Ivan Her- 
shey, played two violin solos. 

"The Tarantelle" Dredla 

"A Bach March" 

The closing group of numbers was 
sung with organ accompaniment. 

"Now Thank We All Our God" 

"Joy to the World" 

"When I Survey The Cross" 
"O Morn of Beauty" Sibelius 

Sophs and Freshu^ 
Record Victories 


The Sophomore-Senior bask 
game played last Friday proved?^ 1 ' 
the best contest in Day «t ^ 
League play this year when thf. a ^ { 

outplayed the Seniors in an overt 
period after the regulation gam e ^ 
ed in a 38-38 tie. Three seniors^" 
two sophomores had already f ?§ 
out when the extra canto beean ^ 

The score at the end of the 
quarter was tied at 9-9. The < 
went into high gear in the next 


tc post 17-13 lead at half-time.^ 
teams played hard fast ball i n th e ] a 
half with the seniors cutting the S ^ 
lead to 34-32 with 2i mniutes of T 
remaining. Three field goals by^ 
Seniors and two by the Sophs tied &! 
score at 38-38 at the end of the ftJ!! 

Shay began the scoring i n the ex- 
tra 3-minute period by dumping 
foul through the hoop. Lynch, fouled 
hi the act of shooting, swished both 
tries through the net to give the Sen 
iors a one-point advantage. Shay 
fouled by Moody as the game ended 
dropped two free throws into the bas- 
ket to clinch the game. 

Shay, scoring 16 points on 6 field 
goals and 4 fouls, was aided by Sarge 
who contributed a total of 13 counters 
to the Soph cause. Rozman and Lud- 
wig scored 15 and 13 points respec- 
tively, the latter bringing the crowd 
to its feet by sensational set shots. 

The other game between the Frosli 
and Juniors turned into a listless 
affair with the former scoring at will 
in the first half, posting a 38-8 lead 
at the intermission. The Junior ag- 
gregation failed to get going in the 
early part of the game and was over- 
whelmed by the Frosh attack. The 
final score was 54-42. 

The J uniors, however, came to life 
in the last two quarters and outscored 
the first-year men 34-16 in the last 
half. The Junior team really looked 
like a ball club in the last period, but 
the advantage gained by the Frosh 
proved too great to overcome despite 
brilliant play by Rakow and Gingrich. 

Lentz played a good floor game 
while scoring 25 points for the win- 
ners. Little supported Lentz by sink- 
ing 13 counters. Gingrich heaved U 
field goals through the nets for a to- 
tal of 22 points for the losers, wlife 
Rakow played his usual dependable 
game and added 12 tallies to the los 
ers' total.

Plans Laid For Ball 
At Senior Meeting 

At a meeting of the senior class 
that was held last week certain plans 
were made in preparation for the 
coming Senior Ball, which is schedul- 
ed for May 18. 

The class decided that since the 
treasury has a sufficient balance, the 
c aps and gowns as well as one pro- 
gram and invitation will be furnished 
each graduating student. A deadline 
w *s also set at which time, May 18, 
a U back class dues must be paid if a 
Sen ior hopes to attend the Ball. 

Wednesday, May 15, was announced 
earl y this week as the date for the

May Day To Feature 
King Arthur's Court 

On May 4 the pages of history will 
be turned backward for on that day a 
grand celebration will be held by Kin^ 
Arthur's Court in honor of the crown- 
ing of their new king and is honor 
of their visitors, the Queen of May 
and her court from Lebanon Valley 
College. The king, William Bendei, 
was chosen by the May Queen and her 
court. He will have twelve knignts, 
chosen by the Junior class, as his con- 

The annual May Day celebration 
for this year is quite novel and dif- 
ferent from that of previous years, 
although the Band will again furnish 
the music. First on the program ther*- 
will be a Jester's Dance followed by 
a scene showing Arthur pulling his 
sword from the rock. The Procession 
of the May Queen and her Court will 
then take place. She will be crowned 
by King Arthur. 

Following this there will be several 
clever dances such as the dance of the 
Queen's maids and housekeepers, the 
Lancer dance, dance by King's 
chefs and waiters, the peasant's dance, 
and a drill by the Knights. Instead

I.R.C. Cabinet Meets 
Tonight In Library 

The regular meeting of the Cabinet 
of the International Relations Club 
will be held this evening at 6:45 
o'clock in the basement of the library. 
The topic for discussion will be the 
Intervention and Non-intervention 
polices of the United States. 

President Jane Ehrhart will open 
the discussion with a definition of the 
terms of intervention and non-inter- 
vention. Then, two committees com- 
posed of the cabinet members will up- 
hold opposite sides of the subject. 
Ralph Shay will act as leader for the 
committee on intervention, which is 
composed of Carl Ehrhart, Martha 
Davies, William Scherfel, and Robert 

Jack Ness will lead the non-inter- 
vention committee, consisting of Rich- 
ard Baldwin, Betty Anne Rutherford, 
Florian Cassady, and Elizabeth Sat- 
tazahn. In this manner the students 
will attempt to arrive at a definite 
conclusion regarding these two vital 
American policies. 

Kalozeteans Hold 
Anniversary Dance 

Chet Lincoln Engaged 
To Play For Dancing 

Final plans for the annual Anni- 
versary Dinner-Dance of Kalozetean 
Literary Society were laid at a few 
short meetings called in the past two 
weeks. Anniversary President Min- 
nick reported that most of the ar- 
rangements for the dance have been 
made and that plans for the celebra- 
tion of the anniversary are running 

Selection of a favor was made at 
one of these meetings and the con- 
tract was awarded to a well-known 
firm from which Kalo has received 
splendid favors in former years. As 
usual the identity of the favor will 
be kept secret until the night of the 

Chet Lincoln's Orchestra has been 
engaged for the annual affair at the 
Hotel Hershey which promises to be 
the best ever attempted by the society.

Progress has been noted during the 
play rehearsals in recent weeks and

Guinivan Elected 
As Yearbook Editor 

At a meeting of the sophomore class 
Tuesday noon Robert Guinivan was 
elected to the editorship of the 1342 
Quittapahilla. At the same time Rob- 
ert Dresel was chosen to be Guini- 
van's running mate as business mana- 
ger. The defeated candidates for the 
two offices were Robert Mays for edi- 
tor and Robert Sarge for business 

Guinivan's election as editor was 
not unexpected. He has been an hon- 
or student from the time he entered 
college and is at present secretary of 
the Y. M. C. A. cabinet. Dresel is a 
member of the Life Work Recruits

Early Easter Service 
To Be Presented By Y's 

On Friday morning, March 15, at 
6 o'clock in Engle Hall, there will be 
an early morning Easter service in 
charge of the Y. W. and Y. M. C. A. 
The service will open with an organ 
prelude by Virginia Goodman, follow- 
ed by the regular chapel service con- 
sisting of the hymn, "Holy, Holy, 
Holy," and the Lord's prayer. Eliza- 
beth Sattazahn will read the nine- 
teenth psalm, and Victoria Turko will 
furnish the special music. 

The speakers for the morning are: 
Anna Mae Bomberger, Richard Rhodes 
Evelyn Miller, and Paul Horn. Be- 
tween the speeches appropriate music 
will be rendered. There will also be 
group singing throughout the pro- 
gram. The theme is the presentation 
of the Easter story from Palm Sun- 
day to the Resurrection as told by eye 
witnesses. It portrays the last days of 
the Lord, and Jesus as the living 
Christ through the resurrection. 

Faculty Artist 


. . will present recital 

Freeland To Appear 
In Faculty Recital 

Another faculty recital will be held 
in Engle Hall on Wednesday evening, 
March 27, at 8 o'clock. W. Merl Free- 
land, A.B., professor of piano in the 
conservatory of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege, will be the performing artist. 

Mr. Freeland is quite an accom- 
plished pianist. He has studied exten- 
sively, and has appeared very often 
on the concert stage. He was a stu- 
dent at the University of Oklahoma 
and at Oklahoma City University, 
having graduated from the latter in 
1931. This versatile young man was 
accompanist and student conductor of 
the Oklahoma University's Men's Glee 
Club and conductor of a men's chorus 
in the city. 

In 1932 he received a four-year fel- 
lowship from Julliard Graduate 
School of Music. He studies piano 
with Madame Olga Samaroff-Stokow- 

This talented, but modest artist 
has played his way straight into the 
hearts of every student on campus 
with his brilliant tone, style, and spir- 
it. At all performances, he is com- 
plete master of his instrument and 
the audience. Fired with enthusiasm, 
he plays with unusual vitality and ex- 
citement. He possesses both an intel- 
lectual and an emotional understand- 
ing of his music. And, perhaps, one 
of the outstanding reasons for his 
popularity at Lebanon Valley is his 
remarkable adaptability to the moods 
of modern music. 

(Continued Page 2, Column 3) 


As a grand climax for their year's 
work the cabinets of the Y. M. C. A. 
and the Y. W. C. A. will join in 
having a banquet Monday, April 1, at 
six o'clock. The affair will be held at 
Moyer's Restaurant in Lebanon, Penn- 

This will replace the usual practice 
of separate banquets ; and advisers of 
both organizations, including Dr. 
Lynch, Dr. Stonecipher, Dr. Light, 
Dr. Ritchie, Dr. Shettel, Dr. Black, 
Dr. Lietzau, Mrs. Green, Miss Myers, 
and Miss Henderson will be present.

en the world-famous "Hallelujah 
Chorus," will be sung by our own col- 
lege chorus of one hundred voices, a 
union choir composed of quartettes of 
singers from each of the Annvilie 
churches, and four outstanding solo- 
ists. All of these singers have been 
working all year to make this a top- 
notch performance. 

The soloists, who have been secured 
to sing the difficult and intricate arias 
from this religious masterpiece, are 
well known to most students.

Cast Ready For 
Kalo- Delphian Play 

by Louise Saylor 

"The Youngest" by Sidney Barry is 
now whipping into final form. Just 
one week of rehearsals remains before 
the opening night on Friday, March 
29, when Kalo and Delphian will pre- 
sent their annual anniversary play. 
Under the able direction of Mrs. Paul 
Billett and Dr. G. G. Struble the cast 
is now reaching the point where a 
slight case of boredom is setting in. 
This is, needless to say, evidence that 
running through the play is becoming 
mechanical and that all efforts can 
be directed toward polishing off any 
remaining rough spots. To the out- 
sider, the play appears to be about 
ready for production. 

The greatest and probably only real 
difficulty yet remaining is the achieve- 
ment of the effect of crowds off-stage. 
Various possible means of obtaining 
the proper type and amount of noise 
have been tried. It seems to resolve 
itself into a matter of employing vic- 
trola records, but just which ones 
still remains a problem. However, 
with Stage Manager Cassady at work 
this should soon be solved. All other 
stage properties and clothes have been 
decided upon. 

It is rumored that the members of 
the cast have faithfully promised to 
go over their lines at least once each 
day during vacation. If such a pro- 
mise is adhered to, "The Youngest" 
cannot help but live up to the Kalo- 
Delphian standard.

Although it may seem inconceivable 
that anyone could express an opinion 
not entirely unfavorable to the new 
cut system and still not be a paid 
propaganda minister of the adminis- 
tration, nevertheless it is altogether 
possible. Perhaps it isn't as tyranni- 
cal a combination of the best features 
of the Spanish Inquisition and Nero's 
persecutions as some students seem to 
think. In other words, maybe the ar- 
gument isn't all on one side. It sel- 
dom is, you know; and there isn't any 
legitimate reason why this should be 
an exception. 

The introduction of the new fea- 
tures isn't essentially a change in the 
principle of checking up on absences. 
It merely provides for a more strict 
enforcement of a rule already exist- 
ing for quite some time, if precedent 
means anything. There isn't much 
reason for having a law on the book 
if it isn't intended that that rule be 
executed. That was one of the faults 
of Prohibition. 

Why does anyone come to college 
anyway? This may be a moot ques- 
tion with some students, although it 
shouldn't be. Classes and studies are 
still accepted as the principle items 
of importance in college, at least by 
the professors. If the student doesn't 
consider classes of sufficient value to 
attend them regularly, it may be his 
own fault. This has been true a suf- 
ficient number of times to make it 
worthwhile considering. Superficial 
and infrequent glances never made 
anyone interested in anything, unless 
it be in avoiding the subject as the 

The new system may conceal other 
hidden advantages too. It's bound to 
result in a conservation of financial 
resources, for a bill in the hand hurts 
much more than two in the bush, or 
wherever they are kept. For students 
who can't seem to keep from flinging 
pennies about promiscuously it should 
prove a boon. Of course, the present 
philosophy is one of spending, but it 
can't be so forever. Thrift may count 
for something yet, if there is any 
thing left by that time to be thrifty 

The good old days seem to be fad- 
ing fast, the times when anyone could 
get absences excused on the grounds 
of sickness, distinctly recalled with 
the aid of Prof's little black roll-book 
and without benefit or diary or other 
written evidence. At least the virtue 
of honesty will be encouraged, if only 
because of external pressure. 

What about abolishing the cut sys- 
tem altogether and allowing everyone 
unlimiteds? The trouble with that ar 
gument is that its most ardent sup 
porters seem to be the ones with the 
largest overcut bills, who are in most 
need of restraint. Money can be saved 
by going to classes, you know.

easter parade 

By Styliste 

Hello Easter shoppers! What's the 
costume going to be this year — or is 
it too early to tell? You'd better make 
up your mind soon because there are 
only 8 more shopping days until Eas- 
ter. Now let's see — what do we need 
— dress or suit, coat, shoes, hat, gloves 
and bag. 

Flowered and printed silks and ray- 
ons are good again this year. What 
shall it be — tailored or dress? Many 
college girls want the dressy styles 
because they are tired of wearing the 
skirts, sweaters, and shirt waist dress- 
es they've been wearing all winter. 
Among the dressy styles you'll find 
box pleats, kick pleats, accordian 
pleats — most any style as long as the 
skirts are full. Pockets are seen this 
year — very definitely. The larger and 
more original the pocket, the mce 
stylish the dress. Now, fellows, the 
girls should be able to carry their 
own accessories, for believe it or not, 
those large pockets are featured in 
evening clothes as well as in street 
clothes. Plain pastel shades are very 
neat looking and most becoming. Pas- 
tel gloves, bag and hat to match dress 
or to set it off makes an outfit for any 
Easter parade. 

Suits are extremely tailored this 
year. Buttons make the suit. Silver, 
gold, brass and bronze are the most 
popular. Extra buttons to be sewn on 
can be had to make your outfit more 
unusual and more stylish. Dressier 
suits with bolero jackets are going 
to be worn a lot. They will be very 
good for campus wear too. Why not 
buy a practical Easter outfit? 

Coats, too, will be worn in all styles 
— fitted and swagger, plain and plaid. 
Anyone would be proud to own a chub- 
bie coat. They are made of a brushed 
mohair and are fully lined through- 
out with rayon satin. They come in 
ten beautiful colors and make any 
old skirt look like a new outfit. 

Flower hats are, of course, the most 
popular spring hats. Don't laugh, fel- 
lows, they are really very pretty, col- 
orful, and neat. Linen, and cotton hats 
to match dress and bag are most pop 
ular. Pastel turbans — so inexpensive 
— make it possible to have a different 
hat for each ensemble. 

Band To Play At 
Lebanon High School 

On Thursday, March 28th, our Leb- 
anon Valley College Band will pre- 
sent a concert at the Lebanon Hign 
School. The occasion is the Band Fes- 
tival of the Southern District of the 
P. S. M. A. Two hundred and fifty 
students from over fifty high schools 
will be present. Our band is giving a 
complementary concert to this group. 
The next day this entire group will 
present a concert and Professor Rut- 
ledge will be one of the conductors.

There are quite a lot of new

your history sugar-coated (I do) try 
this pill. 

Right up to the minute is The Mor- 
tal Storm by Phyllis Bottome, which 
is a novel of life under the Nazi re- 
gime. The author is new to us, but 
what we're read of the book seems to 
be something special.

of the usual May Pole Dance, this 
year it will be in the form of a fare- 
well dance for the Knights with only 
the junior girls participating. 

The junior music students are in 
charge of the May Day, with Audrey 
Immler being the general chairman, 
since this idea was principally hers. 
It is planned that the physical educa- 
tion classes will begin to learn the 
dances immediately after Easter va- 
cation. This sort of program will ne- 
cessitate the using of many costumes 
and should be quite colorful. 

Freeland To Appear 
In Faculty Recital 

(Continued from Page 1) 

The conservatory is indeed proud to 
present one who has travelled so ex- 
tensively on concert tours. He accom- 
panies Earle Spicer, well known bari- 
tone, and Joseph Bentonelli, tenor. 

This year Mr. Freeland toured New 
England with Earle Spicer, appear- 
ing at Williams College in Williams- 
town, Mass., at a prep school near 
Hartford, and with a Glee Club near 
Boston. They also gave a concert at 
Lafayette University at Easton. 

Prof. Freeland has just returned 
from a southern tour through Dela- 
ware, North Carolina, and Alabama, 
with a brief holiday at Daytona 
Beach, Florida. Recently he accom- 
panied John Carter, tenor, in a cha- 
pel program here. 

After Easter he will be leaving for 
concerts in Virginia. 

His program will include:

Mease Carries Off 
Honors In League 

By tabulating thirteen points in the 
final game of the season Ralph Mease 
won the scoring championship in the 
Basketball league from Bob Keehn of 
Ursinus who had gone ahead in his 
last two contests with 125 points. 
Mease with 57 field goals and 21 fou^ 
won the honor from Keehn who had 
scored 48 field goals and 29 charity 

This enables Lebanon Valley to ear- 
ly off this honor for the third straight 
season as Raymie Frey won the hon- 
ors the past two campaigns with 190 
and 148 points respectively. 

By scoring seven points in his last 
contest with Muhlenberg Bill McKin- 
ney of Albright edged out Moyer of 
Ursinus and Ed Schillo of Lebanon 
Valley for fourth place in the league. 
Johnny DeBold of F. & M. went on a 
scoring rampage near the end of the 
campaign to take third honors. De- 
Bold also won individual game scor- 
ing with a total of 23 points in the 
Bucknell games or just eleven points 
below the record set by Raymie Frey 
in 1938.

League Nears Close 

The Day Student league neared 
completion when the Seniors topped 
the Frosh, 55-53, in an exciting over- 
time battle, while Juniors fell victims 
to the deadly shots of the Sophomores 

On Thursday, the Freshmen threw a 
scare into the league leading fourth 
year men when they came from be- 
hind in the second half to tie up the 
ball game, 51-51. At half the score 
had read, 41-21 in the Seniors' favor. 
Lentz began to find the hoop, and the 
yearlings caught up with the older 
men. In the overtime the experience 
of the Seniors proved advantageous 
and they pulled away to win. 

On Friday, the Sophs and the Jun- 
iors tied up in a thrilling first half 
battle that saw the Sophomores in 
front, 23-21. In the second half, the 
second year boys cut loose to com- 
pletely bewilder and demoralize the 
Juniors. Paced by Boltz who tallied 
22 counters the Sophs were unbeat- 

E-town Girls Trim 
Honor Team, 32-24 

On Tuesday evening the L. V. C. 
Honor Squad received their second de- 
feat of this season in the hands of 
Elizabethtown 32-24. 

During the first half the home team 
made six points to their opponets 
twenty. The beginning of the third 
quarter the E-town coach put in her 
second team and this period ended 
with the score 28-10. The fourth 
quarter the L. V. C. forwards went 
on a late scoring spree, tallying four- 
teen points to E-town's four. 

The outstanding forward of the 
game was Strite of E-town who scored 
sixteen of her teams 32 points. Guard- 
ing honors go to 'Pete' Geyer and 
Isabel Shatto for L. V. C. 

The next time the honor team will 
swing into action is when they play 
Shippensburg College as part of the 
Mothers' Weekend celebration, Satur- 
day, April 5. Last night the freshman 
team journeyed to Shippensburg to 
engage the freshmen of that school. 

Frosh Win Only Two 
Of Eleven Contests 

The 1940 freshman basketball sea- 
son was anything but rosy as the first 
year men succeeded in winning only 
two contests of an eleven game sche- 
dule. They were able to win their 
first start of the season at the ex- 
pense of the F. & M. Frosh by the 
count of 31-27 after trailing most of 
the contest. Then followed a streak 
of five consecutive reverses at the 
hands of Albright, Hershey Industrial 
and Gettysburg quintets, the last two 
in two contests each. 

Lebanon Business College proved 
an easy victim at Lebanon by the 
count of 34-21 and then came another 
relapse of four straight setbacks ad- 
ministered by Pine Tree, Albright 
and Hershey Junior College twice. At 
no time was the squad larger than 
a total of eight candidates and several 
times Coach Frock had difficulty in 
assemblying a starting quintet. Best 
performances of the season were turn- 
ed in by Gollam, Matala and Martin. 

Bill Gollam succeeded in leading 
the team's offense with a total of 83 
markers his best effort being the 
twenty counters he scored in the 
Lebanon Business College game. His 
height and ability to retrieve the ball 
from the bank boards made him an in- 
valuable asset to the Valley five. 
Harry Matala served as an excellent 
floor man and ball handler while his 
work as right guard was of exception- 
ally fine quality. Don Martin did well 
in aiding the ball handlers and of- 
fense of his team. Ralph Lentz was 
an excellent prospect until he dropped 
from the team early in the season. 

Several ludicrous incidents were 
brought forth in the course of the 
season's play such as the "wrong way 
Corrigan" act of Silliman and the ball 
handling of Bill Olexy. The fans were 
rewarded each time they witnessed 
one of these frays in seeing a circus 
type of play. 

The team succeeded in scoring 281 
points to their opponents 378 which 
which is not so terrible and shows 
that most of the games were close in 
fact in only four contests were the 
teams separated by more than ten

day studentettes 

By Wanda Ride 

Things certainly seemed dead this 
week in the D. S. R. Nobody could 
blame anybody else for telling just a 
little white lie if it would serve to stir 
up a wee bit of excitement. Methinks 
the reason is this: Easter vacation 
just kinda' sneaked up on us, leaving 
us high and dry with simply scads of 
work to do before vacation begins. 
Doesn't that reasonably account for 
the quiet, industrious atmosphere per- 
vading day studentettes' quarters? 

If anyone wants to know, those red 
discs, diameter of five inches, are the 
reasons for the worried expressions 
cn the faces of the frosh. The next 
worst thing to seeing ourselves as 
others aee us is hearing ourselves as 
ethers hear us. If the voice record- 
ings serve to silence some of those 
freshmen that think they've got the 
gift of gab, the public speaking 
course will have accomplished its good 
deed for (he year. 

When Betty Ann Rutherford pops 
in with a serious look replacing her 
usual grin, you can add that to the 
fact that Lillian Leisey is going about 
with a determined air, and it sums 
up to this: there will be a debate at 
four- thirty. It's surprising what these 
little daily arguments will produce — 
debaters of no mean ability. 

Now has passed the week when all 
the day students have their opportun- 
ity to trot out their Sunday hats. It 
was really funny to see how many 
persons said, "Oh! I didn't know you," 
— all because the young ladies chuck 
ed r.side their skirts and sweaters to 
don dresses and hats, the convention 
al garb for the teas held at the pres 
ident's home. 

Somebody tells Wanda that she's 
oh-h-h-h! so far behind the times;

End Of Season Nears 
For Debating Activities 

Debating activities continue for 
both the women's and men's debating 
teams. The women's negative team, 
consisting of Lillian Leisey and 
Louise Saylor, went to Collegeville to- 
day to oppose the affirmative team of 
Ursinus College on the isolation 
question. This same team will debate 
Upsala at East Orange, N. J., during 
Easter vacation. 

At present the men have plans for 
only two more debates, although it 
is expected that there may be more 
radio debates after the Easter vaca- 
tion. Last evening Robert Mays and 
George Wilkalis represented Lebanon 
Valley against Wagner College on the 
isolation question. Yesterday after- 
noon the same combination debated a 
team from Hartwick College on the 
same problem, when the Hartwick ar- 
rived a day ahead of schedule. 

Lehman Will Address 
Biologists' Meeting 

Clarence Lehman, Lebanon Valley 
class of '39, will speak at the meeting 
of the Biology Club to be held tonight 
at 7 :30. Lehman at present is enroll- 
ed at Temple Medical School and will 
tell of his work there. He served as 
president of the Biology Club while 
a student at Lebanon Valley. 

Irene Seiders, Dorothea Donough, 
and Donald Haverstick will present 
topics of interest to biology students. 

Hershey College Four 
Sing In Chapel Program 

Last Friday morning, as a special 
chapel program, a male quartette 
from the Junior College at Hershey 
sang. Mr. Richard Neubert, super- 
visor of music there, is their director 
and accompanist. The quartette is 
ocmposed of Kenneth Smith, first ten- 
or; Robert Stuart, second tenor; Dick 
Seiverling, first bass; Charles Sheaf- 
fer, second bass. 

Their program included: 
King Jesus Is A-Listenin' — 

Negro spiritual 
Lassie 0' Mine— Ed. J. Walt 
Song of the Jolly Rogers — 

Alma Mater of Hershey Jr. College. 

It is interesting to note that Mr. 
Richard Neubert composed and ar- 
ranged the music for the Alma Mater, 
while Dick Sieverling wrote the words.

Miss Jean Marbarger, who gradu 
ated from the Conservatory here in 
1939, will sing the soprano part. Her 
past performances here and in sur- 
rounding towns have established for 
her an excellent reputation as an ac 
complished vocalist. Since her gradu 
ation from L. V., where she studied 
voice with Prof. Alexander Crawford, 
she has gone to Columbia University, 
and is now studying with Douglass 
Stanley in New York City. 

Taylor Tenor Soloist 
The alto arias will be sung by Miss 
Mildred Gangwer, a graduate of Leb- 
anon Valley Conservatory in 1939. 
She, too, is very well known as a solo- 
ist. Few will ever forget her superb 
interpretation of "Ocean, Thou Mighty 
Monster" from von Weber's 'OberoTi' 
which she sang with the college sym- 
phony orchestra last spring. At pres- 
ent, Miss Gangwer is supervisor of 
music in the Elizabethville public 
schools. She is studying voice with 
Prof. Alexander Crawford. 

A member of the Conservatory fac- 
ulty, Myron Taylor, voice professor, 
will sing the tenor solos. Mr. Taylor 
is well known in music circles in New 
York and here on campus. He has 
sung many roles in the Metropolitan 
Opera, and has had extensive concert 
experience. A few months ago, this 
talented vocalist appeared in a facul- 
ty recital here. 

Campbell To Accompany 
The only soloist, whose name is un- 
familiar generally, is Norman Ear- 
row, a Canadian, who will sing the 
bass part. At present, Mr. Farrow is 
attending the Julliard School of Mu- 
sic on a fellowship. He is studying 
voice with Charles Hackett. 

Not only will the soloists and large 
chorus make "The Messiah" a succ^3s

will play the accompaniment on the 
organ in collaboration with the sym-

of Prof. Ed. P. Rutledge.

and unforgettable evening of musical 

Concert Band Appears 

On Friday night will be another 
outstanding musical event. The Col- 
lege Band will present its complete 
program and the Glee Club will pre- 
sent its complete program. 

The Glee Club has returned recent- 
ly from an extensive and successful 
tour. This group of singers voices 
will present its entire program, which 
includes both sacred and secular num- 
bers. The club has faithfully and 
musically represented the school 
abroad, and now it will present its 
tour-program for your approval. 

An interesting and varied program 
marks the initial appearance of the 
College Concert Band. Its selections 
range from classic to popular num- 
bers. From the parading triumphs 

on the football field, it comes to you 
as a refined, musical concert organ- 
ization, whose program includes such 
favorites as "Rierizi Overture" by 
Wagner and "Finlandia" by Sihelius. 

Many specialties mark this years' 
performance as one of the best. There 
will be a cornet trio, a clarinet trio, 
and a tuba solo. And then, last and 
perhaps most favored of all, Gersh- 
win's "Rhapsady in Blue" with Adel 
Kadel of Lebanon playing the piano 
solo. Miss Kadel is studying piano 
with Nella Miller. 

Professor Edward P. Rutledge is re- 
sponsible for all of this. With students 
and faculty members cooperating, he 
has planned and arranged the entire 
festival. He is director of the Chorus, 
College Band, Symphony orchestra, 
and Glee Club. 

Expenses for this gigantic music 
Festival have been rather high, but 
the admission rates have been kept 
reasonable. Admission to "The Mes- 
siah" on Thursday night is fifty cents; 
to the combination Band and Glee 
Club program on Friday night, thirty- 
five cents. Or a combination ticket 
for both concerts will cost the unusu- 
ally low price of seventy-five cents.

Bentzel Named To 
Lead Junior Prom 

Johnny McGee's Band 
Brings Outstanding Name 

Bernard Bentzel has been elected 
to lead the annual Junior Prom on 
Friday, May 10, in the beautiful Her- 
s h e y Park ballroom. The election was 
held Friday morning in chapel after 
class elections had narrowed the can- 
didates down to Bentzel and Maurice 

Bentzel is quite active in class af- 
fairs, having served as president the 
first semester of the present school 
year. He is chairman of the orchestra 
committee for the Prom. 

Johnny McGee, his cornet, and his 
orchestra — all are coming to the 
Junior Prom to play for the promen- 
aders smooth, sweet swing, a dance- 
able rythmic type of music highlighted 
by Johnny himself on his "singing" 
cornet on which he has been likened 
to Bix Beiderbecke. This attraction 
gives to his program a shine and a 
sparkle which most bands usually 
lack, in the absence of an outstanding 
soloist to hold the attention of the 
audience and to make them wait in-

"Arms And The Man" 
Is Philo-Clio Choice 

Imagine yourself about to drop 
peacefully into dreamland one night 
only to be aroused suddenly by a 
strange man's climbing through the 
window! This is only the beginning 
of the intrigue of "Arms and the 
Man," the Bernard Shaw play to 
presented May 3 in Engle Hall as the 
annual dramatic production of the 
Clionian and Philokosmian Literary 

A colorful take-off on war, the sto- 
ry centers about the family of Majoi 
Petkolf, a Bulgarian, during a war 
between Bulgaria and Servia. The 
part of the Major will be portraved 
by Ralph Lloyd, his wife Catherine 
by Martha Jane Koontz, and Raina, 
their daughter, by Ellen Ruppersber- 
ger. Others in the cast include Major 
Sergius Saranoff, Raina's fiance, Will- 
iam Bender; Captain Bluntschli, the 
Swiss, Harold Maurer; Louka, a ser- 
vant girl, Margaret Boyd; Nicola, a 
manservant, Dennis Sherk; a Bulgar- 
ian officer, John Lynch.

there a course for ministerial stu- 
dents. However, Public Speaking 33, 
has been instituted.

College Chorus To 
Sing "The Messiah" 

Music Festival Opens 
Tonight With Oratorio 

The Conservatory worked busily 
this week as the final touches were 
put on the program for the eighth 
annual Music Festival, which will be 
inaugurated tonight with the rendi- 
tion of Handel's "Messiah" by the 
college chorus, a union choir, and four 
soloists. The soloists will be Jean 
Marbarger, Mildred Gangwer, Myron 
Taylor, and Norman Farrow. The 
Misses Marbarger and Gangwer are 
Lebanon Valley graduates, '39. Mr. 
Taylor is member of the Conservatory 
faculty, while Mr. Farrow is attend- 
ing the Julliard School of Music and 
is studying with Charles Hackett. Ac- 
companying this large chorus will be

Tomorrow night the College Band 
and Glee Club will appear in a joint 
program, each presenting a complete

sacred and secular numbers. The 
selections of the Band present a wide 
range of classic and popular num- 
bers; and outstanding on the program 
will be Adele Kadel, of Lebanon, who

Dr. Gress Addresses 
Phi Alpha Banquet 

Last evening, April 3, Phi Alpha 
Epsilon, campus honorary society, held 
its annual banquet at 6:30 P. M. at 
the Harrisburg Civic Club. 

The speaker for the occasion was 
Dr. Ernest M. Gress, who has been 
state botanist of Pennsylvania since 
1920. Dr. Gress is a graduate of 
Shippensburg Normal School, Buck- 
nell University, and University of 
Pittsburgh, from which he received 
the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in 
1920. He also possesses the degree of 
Master of Arts. Dr. Gress has been 
a teacher in public and high schools, 
and is an author of books, bulletins 
and magazine articles pertaining to 


Frederick Huber of Lebanon, Pa., 
has received his acceptance from the 
University of Cincinnati, which he 
will attend next fall. 

Thomas Fox of Union Deposit, Pa.,

though only 19, has shown outstand- 
ing abilities in his work in chemistry. 

Anniversary Play 
Is Well Received 

Baldwin Turns In Stellar 
Performance In Lead 

After such a superior performance 
as that on Friday evening by Kalo- 
Delphian of "The Youngest" by 
Philip Barry, it is very difficult to 
pick out the stellar performers. How- 
ever, first honors, without any reser- 
vations, must go to Richard Baldwin 
for his excellent portrayal of Richard 
Winslow. He grew and changed en- 
tirely in character. From the begin- 
ning of the first act, as the down- 
trodden son, to the end of the third 
act, as the true hero, not once did he 
fall out. But keeping in character is 
not his only achievement — he put a 
great deal of life into what might 
have otherwise been a slightly drab 
performance. His stuttering scene was 
especially well-done, as was his 
climaxing speech in the second act. 
Not only his acting but his make-up 
and costuming also developed in char- 
acter. So, uncontested first place goes 
to Dick. 

Next in order or merit came the 
work of Barbara Bowman as Agusta 
and Frank Shenk as Mark. Although 
not in the feminine lead, Barbara put 
a lot of real character acting into her 
role. She not only looked the bored 
sophisticate but acted it as well. Her 
strut when going out to dinner in the 
third act may be cited as character- 
istic of her work— well done to say 
the least. 

After a series of minor role in pre- 
vious plays, Frank Shenk has shown 
his real ability on the stage. He did 
a splendid job as the brother who 
was more or less swayed between his 
older and younger brothers. His whole 
attitude changed with the change in 
the side he followed. 

Carolyn Kissinger, in the feminine 
lead, did rather well. She was handi- 
capped only because the part itself 
did not offer much opportunity for 
displaying personality. She did make 
the most of this mediocre part— add-

Mothers To Visit Campus 

Mothers' Week-end, one of the high- 
light week-ends on campus, is to be 
celebrated from April 5-7. Plans have 
already gotten under way, and moth- 
ers can be assured that it will be well 
worth their while to visit their daugh- 
ters during these few days. The 
Freshmen Y-Cabinet has secured 
enough money to present flowers to 
all the mothers. 

The program will begin with a com- 
bined concert by the Glee Club and 
the L. V. C. Band, to be given Fri- 
day, April 5, in Engle Conservatory. 
This will be the final feature of the 
music festival which is to begin 
April 4. 

Saturday morning the mothers will 
be privileged to witness their daugh- 
ters' athletic ability as the girls plm 
to match their skill against one an- 
other in basketball. 

One team will be composed of the 
juniors and freshmen, while the other 
team will consist of the seniors and 

The game will be held in the Anxi- 
ville high school gymnasium and will 
begin at 10:30 A. M. Miss Myer will 

In the afternoon, a play entitled 
"The Tenth Word" will be presented 
by a number of the girls. The cast 
has been working on the play, which 
will be a contrast of college life in the 
past to that of the present. Richarc 1 
Baldwin is directing the play. Musical 
numbers will be rendered between 

The program for the day will con- 
clude with a Mother and Daughter 
banquet to be held in the dining hail 
at 5:00 o'clock. Miss Henderson wi)i 
be the speaker. 

Sunday morning the mothers and 
daughters will attend any of the 
churches in the town which they de- 
sire. Mothers' Week-end will come to 
a close with a tea in the afternoon. 
The tea will be held in North Hall

Another editorial prayer was an- 
swered Tuesday morning when Dr 
Mabel Silver, medical missionary to 
Africa, addressed the student body 
Not only was her participation signif- 
icant for her interesting address in 
itself, but also for the auspices un- 
der which she was secured. 

The Student World Friendship Pro- 
ject is known well enough, or at least 
has been presented a sufficient num 
ber of times, that no lengthy explan- 
ation is necessary. The folder dis- 
tributed in the chapel Tuesday tells 
the whole story. 

Perhaps no more eloquent a testi 
rnony of the worth of this project is 
necessary than that furnished by one 
of the persons participating in the 
piogram, a son of Africa himself. The 
contrast of this living evidence of the 
influence of the missionary enterprise 
and the picture of the primitive na 
tive is obvious; and bear in mind that 
<x living example is ten times as ef 
icctive as even a newspaper editorial 

Lebanon Valley has had an consist-

Although it may be easy to slip into 
indifference after the disappointment 
occasioned by Lebanon Valley's fail

the next representative, that doesn't 
cancel in any way the value of the

chology, rather no psychology at all, 
and is the sign of immature thinking

. . . The Census 

Uncle Sam is asking college stud 
ents to write home during March and 
request something besides the tradi- 
tional check. 

He wants the young men and wo 
men who are living temporarily at 
school to remind their parents 

"Count me in when the Census-tak

College students, temporarily away

Students who have no permanent res

they are living while attending school 
or college, however, should be enum- 
erated there. 

Feeling that college students, like 
every other section of the population, 
will benefit from a reliable national 
inventory, U. S. Bureau of Census is 
asking them to do their part in mak- 
ing the 1940 Census a success. The 
Bureau needs their help in the gigan- 
tic task of assembling facts about 132 
million Americans in two ways. First, 
by making sure that their parents will 
report on them to the Census enum-

parents with certain information they 
will need in order to report on them 


by Prof. Miller 

One of the most dramatic and sur- 
prising events of 1939 was the sign- 
ing of two treaties by Germany and 
Russia. The first, signed at Berlin on 
August 19, was a trade agreement 
which provided for a German creu t 
to the Soviet Union of 200,000,000 
marks over seven years at 5 per cent 
to permit the purchase of German 
Is ordered in the next two years. 
Another provision of the treaty would 
permit the purchase of Soviet goods 
by Germany to be ordered in the next 
two years to the value of 180,000,000 
marks. The second treaty was one of 
non-aggression, signed in Moscow on 
August 24. This treaty is to remain 
in effect for ten years. 

The immediate effect of the signing 
of these two treaties was to weaken 
the Anglo-French "peace-front" and 
to destroy the Anti-Communism Pact 
(Signed originally by Germany and 
Japan, although Italy, Hungary, and 
Manchukuo signed later) . Fears weie 
expressed that Germany would now 
receive all the economic assistance she 
needed from Russia, and it was said 
in some quarters that Russia would 
lend military aid to Germany and 
then the world would witness a joint 
Nazi-Soviet anti-democracy crusade. 

But what has actually happened 
since these treaties were signed ? Eco- 
nomic assistance of some kind has 
been given to Germany it is true, out 
nothing like the quantity or variety 
that was expected. Nor has the much 
feared military cooperation between 
Hitler and Stalin taken place. (But 
perhaps to be safe, one had better 
add, "not as of April 2, 1940.") 

The most recent official declaration 
which throws some light on this most 
peculiar rapprochement was the 
speech of Premier Molotoff to the Su 
preme Soviet on Friday last in which 
he went to great lengths to explain 
Russian foreign policy to the Com 
munist leaders from all parts of the 
U. S. S. R. In his speech Molotcff 
omitted any mention of a possible 
Berlin-Moscow Axis, which is signifi 
cant in itself; but what is even more 
important he reaffirmed Russia's neu- 
trality in the Euorpean war. "Stated 
briefly," he said, "the task of our for- 
eign policy is to ensure peace be 
tween nations and the security of oar 
country. The conclusion must be 
drawn from this that we must mam 
tain the position of neutrality and 
refrain from participating in the war 
between the big European powers.' 
Whatever else one may think of such 
statements, it is certain that Hitler 
could have found little to reassure 
him on the question of Soviet assist 

Now we can ask the question, whaL, 
then, has been the net result thus far 
of all the fan-fare of the treaty sign 
ing last August? Has Mussolini per- 
suaded his Axis partner to side-track 
his Communist friends? Has Stalin 
changed his mind? On the surface it 
would seem that here again we must 
wait for future developments to de 
termine whether or not the treaties 
between Germany and Russia were as 
important as we were led to believe 
some seven months ago.

George's first love has been keeping 
the company of one of our "griders" 
(George II, Smee calls this, virile 
suitor and namesake). 

Orchids (dandelions to you) to Fox 
and Huber. These two friends of our 
clan have both received a reward for 
their four years of good work in 
classes and in their hermitage, the 
Chem lab. Both Tom and Fred have 
been selected on teaching scholarships 
to two reputable universities. Colum- 
bia wants Tom; Cincinnati wants 
Fred; and Lebanon Valley wants good 
luck for both. 

After seeing the reaction of the co- 
eds to the prowess of John Carter, the 
not-half-bad tenor who appeared in 
chapel before Easter, Fred Frantz 
asked a fellow companion if he 
thought the girls would get over it in 
time for Philo's Anniversary. Don't 
worry, fellows, Miss Wood loves bari- 
tones! better anyhow. 

Alex Rakow is ahead of the robins 
this year in making his appearance 
on the campus turf. Yes, after three 
years Alex has put aside the home 
town girls as giddy and unintelligent 
and devoted his attention to the joy- 
ful and musical company of co-ed 
"Ginnie" (Virginia is the formal name 
and I don't mean the state). This lit 
tie "robinette" (French for female 
robin?) is Annville's pride and joy 
and one of the "Conserve's" artists 

Jim Reed, the "Little John" of the 
campus, has subjected his actions in 
Friday ethics classes to investigation 
Now when a man like Jim has a^far 
away look in his eyes during classes 
(especially in ethics), nervously in- 
spects his watch, and hastens to be 
the first out of the door, should you 
not question? 

<J id bits 

by Ira Asaph 
After an extended and unfruitful 
search for monkey glands or a foun- 
tain of youth, Ira has discovered that 
the most invigorating thing for this 
111* line of gibberish is a bright spring 
morning. But rejuvenated or not, Ira 
belongs heart and soul to La Vie. 
Lots of things come back in the 
spring besides the birds, to wit, a 
peculiar species of nocturnal biped of 
the genus homo collegian. The male 
of the species makes a peculiar cry 
on Sunday evenings like this, "How 
about a walk, Lucy." The female us- 
ually talks -plenty, but in answer to 
this question says merely, "Sure, 
Kenny." The pair under discussion 
seems to haunt the old mill road, but 
Kreider's and Lovers' Lane have their 
attractions too. 

The dining room has been in an up- 
roar lately with cries of "Minnich 
done it!" but just what Minnich done 
must remain a secret. The only clues 
to date are the blushing faces of Ed 
and Margie Boyd. 

Convalescent Urquehart returns 
from Bermuda sporting a mahogany 
tan and a few souvenirs. Wonder 
what kind of strep bug bit Jerry and 
Al that they found it necessary to ex- 
tend their Easter vacation into a 
southern tour? 

Kalo did much to alleviate the us- 
ual week-end boredom. In Ira's hum- 
ble and untutored opinion, "The 
Youngest" was one of the most enter- 
taining plays to hit the L. V. stage 
in his time. Yours truly realizes he 
is not hired to review plays, but please 
ed., can't I hand Dick Baldwin a wee 
bouquet for his super presentation of 
the worm that turned? 

The Saturday night dinner dance 
was (how do they say it in deah ole 
France) par excellente, with the fern 
mes looking very swish and the bhoys 
very sleek with Mr. Hershey's glori- 
fied harem as a background. While 
we are on the subject of Kalo, will 
Dave Lenker ever stop talking about 
his luscious little Hood import? 
In sick bay this week is that winner 
of prizes as the most beautiful baby, 
Joe Carr, down with mumps, of all 
things. Hobbling- around on crutches 
is Dot Long who makes the earnest 
request that Ira report that the next 
person who says, "Too bad you broke 
your leg, Dot, now they'll have to

A home-state lad, Johnny was born 
into a musically inclined family j Ust 
twenty-seven years ago in Philadel- 
phia. Besides playing the trumpet at 
a very early age, he developed skill 
in beating the drums. At ten he play, 
ed in a Philadelphia symphony group 
His slight build, however, made him 
give up the drums, and he turned to 
accounting as his life's work. In the 
end music won out and he went on 
with the trumpet. Beginning by play, 
ing with local bands he soon was 
heralded for his trumpet playing. 
This enabled him to attain member- 
ship in the top-flight bands of the 
country — Benny Goodman, Glenn Mil- 
ler, Dick Himber, Vincent Lopez, 
Russ Morgan, Jan Savitt, and others. 
A short while ago he organized his 
own band gathering about him four- 
teen men who could play the sweet 
music which he preferred. His theme 
Great Music" is an original com- 
position with the music by Johnny, 
himself, and the words by Tom War- 
ing, Fred Waring's brother. Then 
followed — bookings at Donahue's 
radio build-ups. 

Although perhaps not so well* 
kriuwn to Lebanon Valley College 
students and friends, from all ap- 
pearances, Johnny McGee and his or- 
chestra should meet the common ap- 
proval of all who attend the Prom 
and thus help make an enjoyable 
evening more enjoyable.

Bill McKinney, of Albright, 
Wagner, of F. & M., Dick Busby, of 
Muhlenburg, and two Bucknell play- 
ers, George Kiick and Bob Longnak-

OeBold was on the first team last 
ar . a lso, Keehn was on the 1939 
second team, while Diamond received 
honorable mention a year ago and 
Mease is only a sophomore so this 
was the first year he could be consid- 

By glancing at the recent release 
of the All-Penna. court team we fail 
to find even a trace of a representa- 
tive, even as far down as the honor- 
able mention list, from Lebanon Val- 
ley. Almost every school from all over 
the state had at least one candidate 
named but such teams as Gettysburg, 
Albright and Lebanon Valley failed to 
place a man. Even though the Blue 
and White courtsters were all sopho- 
mores we cannot see why they should 
not have gotten at least one vote. 

The final team records reveal that 
Lebanon Valley finished third in total 
points scored with only Muhlenburg 
and Ursinus above them. They also 
show that there were 499 points 
counted by L. V.'s opponents in twelve 
contests which puts the Dutchmen at 
the bottom of the heap in team de- 
fense. The final records are:

Coach Holds First 
Baseball Practice 

Soph Infield Intact As 
Walk Promises Old Form 

Realizing the proximity of the first 
game of the baseball season, Coach 
Ullery issued the call for all aspiring 
candidates, immediately upon their re- 
turn from the Easter holidays. Twen- 
ty-two hopefuls answered the call, to 
pet their first bit of instruction from 
the new coach, who announced that 
serious training would begin at the 
first sign of decent weather. 

Among the smiling faces that were 
present, the crack frosh infield of 
last year stood our prominently. The 
infield, composed of Schillo at first 
base, Staley covering the keystone 
sack, Mease filling the short field 
spot, and Smith holding down the hot 
corner, should resume the power it 
displayed last year. The boys ca- 
vorted about the inner pasture with 
skill and grace to provide an airtight 
inside defense, while, at the plate, 
they proved to be the main offense, 
Staley and Mease leading the slug- 

Chris Walk, who suffered a sore 
arm most of last year, expects to be 
back in the harness again this spring 
to do most of the receiving. If Walk 
regains his Sophomore form, the 
catching end will be well taken care 
of. Walk's peg to second is one of 
the most accurate in the circuit, while 
his strategic handling of the hurlers 
is really a masterpiece. Although a 
little weak with the stick, Walk is ex- 
pecting to develop the punch needed 
to pound out hits. 

The pitching staff, with Frank 
Kuhn leading the list, has been work- 
ing into shape the past few weeks. 
Kuhn, a control pitcher, did the major 
part of the hurling last spring, win- 
ning a fifteen inning contest from 
Muhlenberg. Handicapped by lack of 
good hitting support, Kuhn lost some 
tough ones. Weiler, a Sophomore, is 
another good hurling prospect, hav- 
ing turned in some fine work last 
year. Cherry Tree's prodigy, "Big 
Gawge" Katchmer, is expected to de- 
velop some control this year, and to 
do away with his hard luck streak. 

The outfield will be Coach Ullery's 
chief worry. There are no left overs 
from last year, forcing him to devel- 
op some from the Freshman crop. The 
first year men, though untried, may 
prove to be the answer to the coach's 
prayer. Until practice has gone on 
for some time, it is impossible to make 
any definite predictions. 

. - - Handball 

Play in handball competition wa 
resumed this week with the beginning 
of a doubles tournament sponsored 
by the Day Students' Congress. Most 
of those who participated in the sin- 
gles tournament have teamed up and 
entered the contest. Bob Breen, sin- 
gles champ, has teamed up with Bill 
Mueller while "Pete" Beamcsderft.r, 
runner-up, has paired with Ralph 

Bill of his affliction and he may be 
come once more the Cardinal's first 
string receiver. 

Stratton will be remembered as the 
six-feet, five-inch pitcher of the Chi- 
cago White Sox who had his right 
lee amputated because of a shooting 
accident during the fall of 1938. He 
has since replaced it with a wooden 
support and taken over the first base 
coaching job for Jimmy Dykes' team; 
but this season he is again on the tir- 
ing line and we wish him all the suc- 
cess in the world in his gritty under- 
taking Although he has not yet 
learned to field a well-placed bunt, he 
is faithfully working on this handicap 
and may pitch quite a few contests for 
the broken-down White Sox. 

Frock Announces 
Tennis Schedule 

The 1 940 tennis schedule as released 
this week by Athletic Director Frock 
is as follows: 

April 19 — Moravian — away. 

April 22 — Elizabethtown — home. 

April 24 — F. and M. — away. 

April 25 — Bucknell — away. 

April 27 — Albright — away. 

May 4 — Western Maryland — home. 

May 6 — West Chester — home. 

May 8 — Moravian — home. 

May 9 — Drew University — home. 

May 10 — Upsala — home. 

May 14 — Muhlenberg— away. 

May 18 — F. and M.— home. 

May 24 — Bucknell — home. 

May 25 — Dickinson — away. 

The Blue and White tennis aggre 
gation will be formed with last year's 
holdovers as a nucleus and supple- 
mented with freshman prospects and 
upperclassmen who failed to report in 
previous years. Most of these teams 
listed above will offer lively competi- 
tion for the L. V. racquet wielders 
who are expected to comprise one cf 
the Valley's best tennis outfits in the 
past few years. 

"Stewie" Shapiro, Sammy Grimm, 
Carl Sherk and Eddie Creeger, will 
bear the brunt of the 14 matches 
scheduled for the current season. Al- 
though the warmer weather has al- 
leady arrived, Manager Shapiro re- 
ports that the college courts wil' 
hardly be in condition to use until the 
later part of next week. Thus the 
college team will really have to hustle 
to iron out the wrinkles acquired by 
inactivity during the winter. 

Seniors Take Crown 
In Basketball Play 

The Senior Men Day Students 
maintained their ascendancy in Day 
Student play by winning the league 
crown in downing the fighting juniors 
by an 82-50 score. Having gained the 
championship last year, the Seniors 
started out early in league play to 
keep their crown this year. 

Half score in the game was 47-20 
with the champs holding the lead. 
Continuing this pace in the third and 
fourth cantos, the Seniors amassed 
the highest number of points in ary 
game this year. Rozman, scoring 34 
counters, again led the scoring fr>r 
the Seniors, and was ably assisted by 
Brubaker with 24. 1 

The Frosh eked out a victory over 
the Sophs in an overtime battle after 
losing a 26-15 half-time lead by care 
less play in the second half. With a 
quarter score of 19-6 against them 
the second year men came back to tie 
the Frosh by the end of the game. 
Wornas failed to make both of his 
charity tosses with the score tied up 
at 42-42 with 15 seconds of play re- 
maining. Seesaw play ended in th-, 
rxtra period when Uhrich sank his 
only field goal of the game to giv- 
the Frosh the game by a 47-45 fina'. 

Final standings of the teams:— 

W. L. Per. 

Seniors 5 1 ^ 6 

Sophs 3 3 .500 

Frosh 3 3 .500 

Juniors 1 5 - 167

ing much with her costuming and her 
excellent stage presence. 

Martha Davies, as the mother, por- 
trayed her character part in fine style. 
Her voice, though perhaps a bit diffi- 
cult t© understand in odd moments, 
was well-pitched. She shows definite 
promise in character parts. 

To Joe Carr, a newcomer to the 
L. V. stage, goes credit for a fine bit 

of work. Although many times he did 
little but add atmosphere, being the 
silent member, he did that well. 

Louise Boger, as Muff, did much to 
liven the stage. Her continual bound- 
ing around kept many would-be dull 
scenes from being dull. Her natural- 
ness was particularly pleasing. 

And then, Irving Oberholtzer as 
Oliver is to be commended for the 
splendid voice-lowering work. Per- 
haps the only thing that marred his 
performance was the fidgeting and jit- 
tering around that did not seem quite 
in character for the older brother. 

And finally, Mary Grace Light, in 
her rather insignificant part, looked 
very nice. Also an innovation for the 
L. V. stage was found in the appear- 
ances of the cat and dog.

Dr. Silver Reviews 
Medical Experience 

On Tuesday morning, April 2, dur- 
ing the regular chapel period, Dr. Ma- 
bel Silver, medical missionary in Si- 
erra Leone, Africa, addressed the stu- 

Dr. Silver stated that sharing the 
abundant life is the work of mission- 
aries, but it requires good health to 
do this work well. She also said that 
to her the ministry of healing is an 
mportant part in Christian ministry. 

The missionaries are interested in 
people as individuals, and they try to 
help them in every way they can. The 
most common disease of Africans is 
yaws, which produces small ulcers 
which can be cured by an injection. 
To the negroes, it is! great entertain- 
ment to have their "chest sounded,'' 
as they say. Most of the work in the 
dispensaries is medical and there are 
only a few accident cases which dif- 
fers so much from our country. The 
most important cases of late are ma 
ternity cases. Africa has all the 
American diseases and many more be 
kides. As high as three hundred are 
treated in the dispensary on one day 

A baby clinic has been held in Si 
erra Leone for ten years, Thin people 
are referred to as being dry. The Af 
ricans say thank-you in material 
ways. They may bring rice, their daily 
food, or some article similar to it 

The African assistants are very 
helpful to the missionaries. In years 
past the white people did all the w r ork, 
but this is not the case today. 

Dr. Silver also gave various stories 
and incidents concering her work and 
friends in Africa. The next student 
representative will go to the Hart 
ford School for Girls in Sierra Le- 
one. Dr. Silver closed her address by 
saying, "You have an opportunity to 
share too in this abundant life," re- 
ferring to the Student World Friend- 
ship Project which got underway on 
Tuesday morning. 

During the next few weeks members 
of the Y cabinets will interview every 
student on campus in a drive to se- 
cure pledges for the support of the 
Friendship Project. This is the pio- 
ce: ure that has been followed in pre- 
vious years.

Galen Hall Site For 
Philo Dinner-Dance 

Plans have been moving smoothly 
for Philokosmian's forthcoming sev- 
enty-third anniversary. The hotel 
selected for the annual dinner-dance 
is Galen Hall near Wernersville. Ga- 
len Hall is a beautiful hotel situated 
in the heart of the South Mountains. 
In years past the summer season of 
this resort did not open soon enough 
for Philo to hold their festive occa- 
sion on its grounds. However, this 
year Philo's dinner-dance will inau- 
gurate Galen Hall's 1940 season. 

Choice menus were discussed in one 
of the special meetings, but the selec- 
tion of the meal has been postponed 
until a little later. Arthur Jordan 
was put in charge of the seating ar- 
rangements for the dinner. Attrac- 
tive favors are in process of selection 
which will uphold the exclusiveness of 
the formal occasion. All of the com- 
mittees are functioning in an expert 
fashion so that an unusual anniver- 
sary is in store.

An extended chapel period has been 
arranged for Monday, April 8. Dr. 
L. M. Birkhead, minister, and leader 
of Kansas City's All Souls Unitarian 
Church, a liberal Center, is to give a 
lecture on America's Little Hitlers- 

Dr. Birkhead has spent most of his 
life in fighting for minority rights 
and intellectual freedom. He has 
travelled extensively, Sinclair Lewis, 
a close personal friend obtained much 
of the material for Elmer Gantry 
from Dr. Birkhead. 

Dr. Birkhead, on his last trip to 
Europe, made the sensational dis- 
covery in Germany of Julius Streich- 
er's "anti-Semitic international." As 
a result, two years ago the Friends of 
Democracy was found. Dr. Birkhead 
has complete information on Ameri- 
ca's would-be-dictators, and is the 
foremost authority on facism in 
America. It should be a rare treat 
to hear his lecture.

The International Relations 

Club discussed leading personages in 
today's international affairs at its 
meeting last Thursday evening in 
Philo Hall. Among those whose vices 
and virtues were discussed were First 
Lord of the Admiralty Winston 
Churchill, Dictator Joseph Stalin, 
Marshal Gamelin, Prime Minister Ne- 
ville Chamberlain, and Premier "One- 
vote" Paul Renaud. 

The constitution of the reorgan- 
ized Student-Faculty Committee was 
approved in faculty meeting Tuesday 
afternoon, with minor changes. This

Valley Group Attends 
Dramatics Conference 

Dr. George G. Struble, coach of 
dramatics at Lebanon Valley College, 
Frank Shenk, Dorothy Kreamer, arm 
Esther Shenk attended the conference 
of high school and college directors 
interested in Little Theater work held 
at Pennsylvania State College March 
15 and 16. 

Events were headed by the presen- 
tation Friday and Saturday nights of 
"The World We Live In," a play by 
Capek Brothers, writers of "R. U. R., ; ' 
given here two years ago. 

Saturday's activities included in the 
morning a round-table discussion 
modeled on "Information, Please," an 
afternoon of going over problems en- 
countered in producing the play of 
the night before, and luncheons at 
which the guests were subdivided ac- 
cording to interests, as high school 
directing, stage designing. 

The majority of the L. V. C. repre- 
sentatives attended the last, as a Lit- 
tle Theater is being organized in the 
county. At their first meeting last 
Sunday, the group appointed Lucille 
Shenk temporary chairman, and she,

Freeland Pleases 
In Faculty Recital 

Merl Freeland, piano instructor at 
Lebanon Valley College, recently ap- 
I eared in the second faculty recital 
of the season. His versatility and com- 
plete ease at the keyboard again 
marked his outstanding ability as a 
true artist. His technique was fault- 
less and his interpretation excellent, 
particularly in the modern numbers. 
The highlight of the varied program 
was the playing of Chopin's B Flat 
Minor Sonata. The beautiful tone of 
the slow movement helped to create 
the proper atmosphere for the fami- 
liar funeral march. 

Responding to the applause of the 
enthusiastic audience, he played as 
his first encore, "Dance Espagnole" 
by Sturbi. He topped his performance 
with his almost traditional arrange- 
ment of "Turkey in the Straw." 

in turn, chose committees on organi- 
zation and nomination. Plans are be- 
ing made to produce at least one play 
this summer, with a possibility of 
three, depending on the number of pa- 
trons' subscriptions that can be sold.

Hi, ho!— Come to THE Frolic! 

Tomorrow night the '43 Frosh are 
putting on the f rolickingest frosh 
frolic that has ever been yours to at-

it! Going, going, — almost gone are 
the tickets, so you'd better hurry if 
you want one. The tickets, you know, 
are very novel dance programs made 
p i wood, and if you go for no other 
reason than to include one in your 
collection, you will be well justified. 

Then, with the irresistible rhythms 
°f the Lebanonians and decorations of 
Spring Fever colors, who could be 
tapt away, even by April showers —

Hickories Planted 
By Biology Club 

Last Friday, April 5, in observation 
of Pennsylvania's Arbor Day, the 
Biology Club members broke ground 
for the first of their proposed an- 
nual planting programs. In the early 
afternoon of that day, the member* 
with pick and shovels planted three 
young hickory trees on the campus 
west of the Men's Dorm. All those 
present including several interested 
faculty members cooperated by throw- 
ing in a ceremonial spadeful of earth. 

The Biology Club is to be commend-

La Vie To Banquet 

Retiring Editor To 
Announce Successor 

The 1940 staff of La Vie Collegienne 
will wind up its year's activity by 
enjoying a banquet this Monday 
night, April 15, at the Green Terrace 
at 6:15. It is rumored that turkey 
with all the trimmings is in store for 
all the members of the paper staff in- 
cluding the recently appointed fresh- 

Professor and Mrs. Carmean and 
Dr. Struble will be the guests of the 
staff for the occasion. Deviating from 
the usual procedure of banquets there 
will be no formal speech. 

The newly appointed heads of the 
La Vie for the coming season will be 
introduced by the retiring editor at 
this time. . 

Day Students Planning 
Spring Dance On 19th 

On April 19th at 8:30 the Day 
Students will hold their annual hop. 
This year the dance will be open to 
all students instead of being closed as 
in former years. Two dances a year 
are sponsored by the day students — 
a Hallowe'en and a semi-formal dance 
in the spring. This year's semi-for- 
mal dance will be held in the Palm 
Room of the Hotel Weimer in Leba- 

Clever programs in the form of 
briefcases have been made. Tickets 
may be secured from Mary Touch- 
stone and Alex Rakow, who are co- 
chairmen of the committee in charge 
of the dance, and from any other day 
student. The price will be one dollar 
per couple.

The musicians in the Conservatory 
of Music at Lebanon Valley College 
presented one of the finest Music Fes- 
tivals ever given here. The rendition 
of Handel's immortal "Messiah" by 
the chorus, symphony, sololists, and 
organ was given before a record au- 
dience in Engle Hall. It was a stir- 
ring performance, beautifully and su- 
perbly done.

Espenshade Named 
Y.M.C.A. Head 

Y. W. Fails To Elect 
As Winner Declines 

Marlin Espenshade was named the 
president of the Y. M. C. A. for the 
school year 1940-41 as the result of an 
election held in chapel yesterday 
morning. The balloting was in charge 
of this year's senior members of the 
cabinet and President Paul Horn. 

Espenshade has been active in Y ac- 
tivities since his freshman year, hav- 
ing served as social chairman during 
the past year. Elected to serve with 
him as officers were Robert Dressel, 
vice president; Robert Ness, secretary 
and Fred Shadle, treasurer. 

The election for officers of the Y. W. 
C. A,, held at the same time, is incom- 
plete at the present time. Although 
Floda Trout received the majority of 
votes for president, she declined the 
position later to accept the presidency 
of the W. S. G. A. A new election 
for president will be held in the next 
few days, with the candidates being 
Anna Mae Bomberger, who was de- 
feated by Miss Trout, and Martha 
Jane Koontz, already elected treasur- 
er, who accepted the invitation of the 
Y cabinet and their advisers to run. 

The other officers of the Y. W. C. A. 
are Ruth Heminway, vice president; 
Margaretta Carey, recording secre- 
tary; Martha Jane Koontz, treasurer; 
Phoebe Geyer, pianist; Louise Bow- 
man and Virginia Goodman, day stud- 
ent representatives; Faculty advisers, 
Mrs. Green and Miss Henderson; So- 
cial advisers, Mrs. Black and Mrs. 

Mothers Get A Taste 
Of College Activity 

by Martha Davies 

Mothers became younger as daugh- 
ters seemed older when the former 
enjoyed college pleasures and the lat- 
ter rose to be painstaking reception- 
ists and hostesses. From the fifth to 
the seventh the dormitory rooms ran 
the gauntlet from thorough cleaning 
as the preparations for the weekend 
were made to desolation when the la&t 
of the mothers left. 

Most interesting facts about the 
weekend are the impressions which 
remain. The mothers left talking 
about the fun of bull sessions, the 
hard beds, the way they were rushed 
from one place to another, and how 
much they would look forward to com- 
ing again. They enjoyed the music of 
the Glee Club and Band, the dash to 
the Pennway, and the novelty of hav- 
ing to be in on time. They rooted for 
their daughters or their class teams 
as a close contest was played between 
class teams. "The Tenth Word" gave 
them a taste of the contrast between 
the old and new and someone said re- 
called to her some of the differences 
between her college days and her 
daughters! From the banquet they 
took thoughts of Miss Henderson's de- 
scribing the triangle formed by moth- 
er, student, and teacher, as a token 
the little floral namecard, designed 
by Stansfield, and as a badge a pink 
rose. Memories of the banquet also 
include delightful musical selections

. . . . Music Festival 

One of the highlights of the year's 
activities took place last weekend 
when the Conservatory presented its 
eighth annual Music Festival to two 
packed houses. Only lack of space 
prevented even larger audiences. As 
it was, the aisles as well as the seats 
were occupied. 

It is superfluous to lavish favorable 
comments on the excellent perform- 
ances of the Chorus and soloists, 
Symphony Orchestra, Glee Club, and 
Band. Things of real worth stand 
on their own merit and there were 
none but words of praise for these 
musicians. Nothing in the world is 
free; everything has its price in pro- 
portion to its value. However, when 
two outstanding concerts two hours 
each in length can be heard for only 
seventy-five cents, which amounts to 
about nineteen cents an hour, then 
that theory of price and value seems 
overturned. It's gratifying to note 
the large attendance of students at 
the concerts too. Perhaps culture is 
not dead after all. 

To Prof. Edward Rutledge, who 
was in charge of the entire Festival 
and directed the performances, is of- 
fered the sincere thanks of the entire 
student body and appreciation for a 
task well done. 

. . . . Suffrage 

By the results of recent campus 
elections it would seem that the noble 
spirit back of the Nineteenth Amend 
ment to the Federal Constitution has 
been in vain. At least, woman suf 
frage hasn't particularly cleaned up 
politics at Lebanon Valley. 

For some reason which has not yet 
been ascertained it was seen fit to 
demand that room reservations be 
made a month earlier than usual. This 
made an immediate W. S. G. A. elec 
tion necessary, which now fell at the 
regular time for the Y. W. C. A. 
election. By a piece of politica 
double-crossing in making nomin- 
ations, presumably for the purpose 
of maintaining the sovereignty of the 
northern part of the campus, one per 
son was put in the uncomfortable 
position of making a choice between 
the presidencies of two organizations. 
The choice was made, but the problem 
was not solved; in fact, it was fur- 
ther complicated. The presidency of 
the Y was not to be filled. 

The most logical thing to do would 
be to declare the other candidate 
elected, since her opponent had with 
drawn. But it was argued that it 
would be undemocratic to install a 
minority candidate; so the successful 
candidate for treasurer was put on 
the ballot for a new presidential 
election, with the proviso that if she 
is unsuccessful in that, she shall re- 
tain her office as treasurer.

2)aij Studentettes 

by Wanda Ride 
April showers have their purpose-, 
but it takes a real optimist to see the 
bright side of a rainy blue Monday. 
Day studentettes dripped in lament- 
ing the fact that "The Wind and the 
Rain in Your Hair" may make a 
beautiful song, but it certainly doesn't 
improve one's appearance. 

A rainy day has other queer effects 
on the gals in the D. S. R. The digni- 
fied seniors began to return to their 
second freshmanhood by having a 
community sing during the lunch 
hour. The chorus was led by Adele 
Black. And Bunny Witmer displayed 
freshmanlike qualities by galloping 
around on the arms of the chairs in- 
stead of on the floor, as seniors 

Spring means house-cleaning even 
to the L. V. C. coeds. Using every- 
thing but the curtains for scrub-rags, 
the girls really went to town on the 
walls. They aren't really clean, but 
at least a few coats of dirt vanished. 
If Betty Rutherford ever wants a re- 
commendation for housework, I'm 
sure the day studentettes would 

The dignified Seniors are always 
worrying about something. First it 
was practice teaching, then applica- 
tions for degree and now the problem 
of getting a job. We underclassmen 
don't think they'll have any trouble.

can write poetry, etc. By the way,

J^. V. Stage 

by Footlight 

With three more weeks of rehearsal 
ahead, the Philo-Clio "Arms and the 
Man," has a lot to be done if a pol- 
ished performance is to result. The 
i'act that the cast has been on the 
btage a minimum of times accounts 
to a large extent for its apparent un- 
easiness on stage. With a veteran 
cast, except for a couple freshmen, 
difficulties should iron themselves out 
time. When the reporter was 
watching rehearsal, trying to dig up 
copy, one of these new-comers said, 
"Just tell them we've got a couple of 
dumb freshmen." However, from all 
appearances, these freshmen come in 
for their share of notice. 

Dennis Sherk, as the servant, is do- 
ing a splendid job of developing his 
would-be continental accent of the 
Bohemians of the '90 's. He is doing 
a lot to make the part of servant pom- 
pous and elegant. The other fresh- 
man, Harold Maurer, has been absent 
lather frequently, so that any com- 
ment on his prospects would be rather 

Up to the present, Martha Jane 
Roontz as Catherine seems to have 
twice as much life and spirit as any 
other member of the cast. She is al- 
ready carrying out her part as a 
match-maker for her daughter in fine 

Ellen Ruppersberger, as the afore- 
said daughter, Raina, appears as the 
meek, sweet, wide-eyed child. Perhaps 
a bit too mild; life and action will 
necessarily increase with subsequent 

In his second role on the L. V. 
Stage as an elderly man, Ralph Lloyd 
promises to do the part justice. His 
interpretation of the father seems to 
contain the right balance between 
sternness and gruff ness and human 
understanding of the problems of his 
young daughter. He is contemplating 
raising his own moustache so he can 
curl it for practice and amusement. 
Time will tell. 

Another moustache-curler, Sergius, 
played by Bill Bender, shows promise 
of being a successful juvenile part. 
His strut on stage in the second act 
bears watching. 

Margie Boyd is at least adding the 
proper sound effects. She was heard 
whistling "London Bridges" at re- 
hearsal when the script called for 
singing off-stage. However, no repeat 

^Book J^lds 

by Touchie 

Seems as if we made our tearful 
farewells a mite ahead of time. But 
here we are on another last appear- 
ance. But postively our last appear- 
ance tonight. 

There are an astonishing number 
of new books, fiction and otherwise. 
We think they look good. (Before 
proceeding further, we wish to say 
that Mary of tfte Anthracite, which 
we thought was good in the last issue, 
is just fair. Excellent plot construc- 
tion, but the craftsmanship and char- 
acter development leave much to be 
desired) . 

Due to flicker soon is Christopher 
Morley's Kitty Foyle. You've all heard 
about it, but it never hurts to be re- 
minded of a good thing. A good friend 
of ours wondered how Mr. Morlcy 
could project himself so completely 
into the character of the heroine, be- 
cause her story seems so completely 

The Nazarene, by Sholem Asch, is 
a novelized life of Christ. It should 
be good, judging by the great demand 
for it. 

Leland D. Baldwin's The Delectable 
Country is not just another pioneering 
novel. Treating our own state, the 
hefty volume looks to be easy and 
entertaining reading. 

If you read the Reader's Digest, 
you no doubt noticed the condensation 
of Land Below the Wind, by Agnes 
Newton Keith. It is our great pleas- 
ure to inform you that the library has 
the original. It is, as our favorite 
professor would say, "delicious." 

Lin Yutang's novel, Moment in Pe- 
king, has also been placed on the 
shelves. If you've read The Import 
ance of Living and/or My Country 
and My People, you need no further 

Not quite ready, but coming up are 
such enticing volumes as Pearl Buck's 
The Patriot; Country Lawyer, by 
I artidge ; Peculiar Treasure, by Ed 
na Ferber, to mention only a few. 

If our column has stimulated just 
a few i-eaders to wider reading, we 
shall not count our labors in vain.

aftC bited which heretofore had been 
g „t. No fewer than three circuit

Left-hander Johnny Walters, Bos- 
ton's gift to Lebanon Valley College, 
has looked very impressive to date, 
even though he has not as yet cut 
loose his fast ball and has thrown 
on ly a few curves. Johnny is a wel- 
come addition to the squad as no left- 
hander has graced the hurling corps 
for quite some time. Incidentally 
Walters looks good at the bat for a 

Sophomore Bob Weiler, who exhib- 
ited quite a bit of promise in his de- 
but last season on the Valley nine, is 
again making a bid for a spot on the 
staff. He also is an excellent hitter 
and may be used some in the outfield 
this season. 

Frankie Kuhn, the ace of the staff 
lor the past two seasons, promises to 
retain that position during the coming 
campaign; while George Katchmer is 
taking it easy trying to overcome a 
lame arm which handicapped him for 
several seasons. George has an ex- 
cellent fast ball if he can gain some 
control which he lacked last year. 

Captain Chris Walk will take care

Blue and White tossers. Coach Ullery

Walk into a top flight hitter, which

Frosh Finish Second 
Among Day Students 

The Frosh gained runner-up hon- 
ors in the Day Students League when 
they eked out a win over the Sophs 
last Friday in a post season game. 
The victors started out in fine style 
and built up a lead of 13-5 by the 
end of the first quarter. Hard play 
dominated the second quarter with 
*\he Frosh outscoring the second year 
men 6-4. 

The soph fought hard in the third 
quarter to overcome the first half lead 
of 19-9 piled up by the frosh. Metro s 
pivot game however provided oppor- 
tunities for the Frosh to score and 
nullify Sarge's brilliant shooting in 
this session. The Sophs gained a 38- 
S0 lead early in the last quarter on 
some fine under-the-basket play, but 
wilted in the waning minutes. 

Lentz scored nine goals to lead the 
Frosh besides playing a good floor 
game. Urich awoke from his usual 
lethargic state to swish the nets for 
13 counters, sinking 3 goals in suc- 
cession in the third period. Scoring 
was divided amongst the Sophs with 
Shay leading with 15 and Boltz con- 
tributing 9.

Juniors-Freshmen Win 
In Weekend Basketball 

On Saturday morning of Mother's 
Weekend a basketball game between 
the Freshmen- Juniors teams and the 
Sophomore-Senior teams was played 
for the benefit of the mothers. This 
was somewhat of a new procedure 
since, in previous years, the L. V. C. 
honor squad always played an outside 
school. This year the Frosh-Jr. team 
defeated the Soph-Sr. team by the 
score of 18-16. 

The game was not fast moving, but 
rather slow in spots : perhaps this was 
due to the fact that these girls played 
together so many times. Although 
this was not an outstanding game, as 
far as playing is concerned, the moth- 
ers as well as the players seemed to 
enjoy it. 

Valley Girls Defeat 
S-Burg In Ping Pong 

For the second time in two years 
the L. V. C. girls defeated the Ship- 
pensburg team in ping pong. This 
year the score in games was 9-8. Each 
team consisted of five players, the 
girls played the preliminary matches 
and then chose the two best players 
from each team to play in the finals. 

For L. V. C, M. Carey and J. Smith 
played against Schwartz and Ryder 
of S-burg. Both of the L. V. C. play- 
ers lost in closely contested matches. 
Carey lost 21-15, 19-21, 21-10 and 
Smith lost 21-17, 21-19. 

Players for Lebanon Valley were 
Margaretta Carey, Jane Smith, Edna 
Rutherford, Marjorie Holly, and 
Dorothea Kroll.

Take League Crown 

Rozman Leading Scorer 
With 23 Point Average 

The championship playoff series be- 
tween the Junior Dorm students and 
the Senior Day" students in the intra- 
mural basketball league was held over 
the past week as the Seniors won the 
first two contests in a best out of 
three series. This series was an ex- 
act replica of the series played last 
year in regards to the two opponents 
but the Seniors here gained revenge 
for the defeats administered to them 
last year by the present Junior Dorm 

The first game played on Thursday 
evening saw the Seniors trounce the 
Juniors by the top-heavy score of 63- 
51 as Tony Rozman starred for the 
Day men as he racked up a total of 
26 points. Barney Bentzel led the 
Juniors in a losing cause with 23 

In the final game of the series on 
Tuesday evening before a boisterous 
crowd of fans the commuters again 
pinned defeat on the heretofore un- 
defeated Dorm students by the score 
of 43-37. Tony Rozman again led the 
Seniors as he accounted for twenty 
of his team's points while Don Lud- 
wig held high-scorer Barney Bentzel 
to only four counters for the Juniors. 
Grow led the the Junior offense with 
eighteen points.

Sunday found the mothers quite at 
home for they understood the dining- 
Uall system and knew the pathways. 
After dinner some of the guests took 
advantage of exploring the men's dor- 
mitories with their daughters. There 
they were amazed at the tidiness of 
the rooms — and the number of doors 
which were locked. In the College 
Church basement a tea concluded Lhe

pointed in the refreshments was prob- 
ably one little sister who wanted her

Analysis Shows That 
Speaker Said Little 

The fifth in the series of extended 
chapel programs on national and in- 
ternational affairs was conducted on 
Monday, April 8. The speaker for the 
period was Dr. L. M. Birkhead, rep- 
resenting the Friends of Democracy, 
an organization founded two years 
ago for the advancement of intellect- 
ual freedom and the abolition of anti- 
fascists propaganda groups in the 
United States. 

The subject of Dr. Birkhead's ad- 
dress was America's Little Hitlers. 
We are living in an era of human his- 
tory which has many unpleasant as- 
pects; the present state of the world 
is crooked. Since the World War when 
the theory of the irresistible force of 
democracy was preached, numerous 
disruptive forces have been let loose 
to assault democracy. The forces take 
the form of anti-democratic propa- 
ganda of three different kinds, the 
communist variety, the fascistic prop- 
aganda of Benito Mussolini, and chief- 
ly that of Adolf Hitler, the master 
of propaganda technique. 

Dr. Birkhead went on to explain 
why such anti-democratic propaganda 
has been effective in the United 
States. Although Hitler is unpopu- 
lar, his propaganda has been success- 
iul because he is exploiting the scape- 
goat idea; America always has to 
have a scapegoat. At first it was Ca- 
tholicism and the Pope, now the Jews 
are being attacked. 

The Little Hitlers who are blaming 
the Jews as the basis of explanation 
for all of ills are William Pelley, Ger- 
ald B. Winrod, and Father Coughhn. 

The speaker suggested three fac- 
tors which should aid us in retaining 
+he democratic form of government. 
First of all, the dictatorship cure is a 
quack cure and the dictatorship state 
is a slave state. Secondly, we are 
here from everywhere; the American 
people are a cosmopolitan group and 
anyone who attempts to set off a min- 
ority group is an enemy of democ- 
racy. The Little Hitlers, by their at- 
tacks on the Jews, are seemingly mak- 
ing Christianity a white man's reli- 
gion. Lastly, the American people 
should talk up deomcracy. Our prob- 
lems will be solved through the free- 
dom available in a democracy. 

Dr. Birkhead concluded by stating 
that the door to change should be 
kept open and the principles of cour- 
age, self-reliance, and intellectual ad- 
venture should be adapted. 

In making a critical analysis of 
Dr. Birkhead's speech, a few items 
should be noted. First of all, he em- 
ployed a large majority of Hitler's 
tactics while delivering an address, a 
loud, high pitched voice, which, al- 
though it might gain attention, is ex- 
tremely irritating. Then, too, the 
comparison can be carried further Dy 
saying that both gentlemen take a 
great deal of time to say nothing. The 
college students were certainly not 
flattered by the underrating of their 
intelligence, which surely was evi- 
denced by the elementary level of che 
ideas advanced. As a conclusion we 
can say that perhaps the speaker him- 
self was one of America's Little Hit- 
lers, although he probably would not

Bomberger Named 


n Run-Off Poll 

N e wly-Electecl President 
Completes Her Cabinet 

Anna Mae Bomberger, of Palmyra, 
vec eived the office of president of the 
Y W. C. A. for 194 -41 as a result 
of the re-election held yesterday morn- 
ing in chapel. This re-balloting was 
made necessary because of the fact 
that Miss Floda Trout had been elect- 
ed almost simultaneously, a week ago, 
to the presidency of both the Y. W. C. 
A. and the W. S. G. A., the latter of 
which she chose to retain. 

The president-elect has named the 
following persons to her cabinet, in 
addition to the officers elected last 

Prayer Meeting Chairman, Martha 
Davies; Asst. Prayer Meeting Chair- 
man, Genevieve Stansfield; Friendly 
Hour Chairman, Floda Trout; Asst. 
Friendly Hour Chairman, Frances 
Prutzman; Librarian, Elizabeth Sat- 
tazahn; World Fellowship Chairman, 
Jane Ehrhart; and Social Chairman, 
Edna Rutherford. 

Through an oversight last week Lu- 
cille Esbenshade was not listed among 
the newly-elected officers. She will 
serve as corresponding secretary.

Beittel Is Named 
Editor Of "La Vie" 
By Faculty Group 

Davies Chosen Associate, 
Dressier Is Business Head 

Charles Beittel, of Harrisburg, has 
been named as editor of La Vie Col- 
legienne for the coming year, it was 
announced Monday evening at the 
annual La Vie banquet. Beittel's se- 
lection was made by the faculty com- 
mittee on La Vie, on the recommenda- 
tion of the retiring editor, Carl Ehr- 
hart, and his nomination approved 
by the faculty in its meeting on April 

At the same time Ehrhart's sug- 
gestion for associate editor was ap- 
proved with the appointment of Mar- 
tha Davies, of Harrisburg, to that of- 
fice. On the recommendation of John 
Moller, retiring business head, John 
Dressier, of Millersburg, was named 
business manager for the coming 
year. Joe Carr was named as his as- 

Beittel is well qualified and experi- 
enced to undertake the editing of the 
student weekly. He has been on La 
Vie staff since his freshman year and 
is now busy finishing up work on the 
1941 Quittapahilla, of which he is edi- 
tor-in-chief. Having been on the hon- 
or roll through his first two years, 
Beittel has established a reputation 
as a student. Miss Davies, who suc- 
ceeds Lillian Leisey as associate edi- 
tor, has served on La Vie staff for al- 
most two years, and has handled 
many of the larger news stories as 
well as contributed feature articles. 

Dressier in stepping into his new 
position continues a partnership 
which has already existed for a year, 
since he has served as business man- 
ager for the 1941 Quittapahilla. Dur- 
ing the past year he has assisted Mol- 
ler in the business department of La 
Vie. Carr is without previous college 
newspaper experience.

. . . . Avi 

Although it has been customary for 
a retiring editor to speak his "Ave" 
from the editorial column of his last 
issue, we had about decided to break 
precedent this year and slip out quiet 
ly in the night. Yet, as the historic 
moment (to us) arives, we find our 
selves unwilling to be so rude as to 
leave without saying good-bye and 
thanks for the lovely time. 

That is not wholly sarcasm either 
True, editorial duties seemed difficult 
at times, but there have always been 
compensations, conpensations which 
viewed in the light of life to come 
will be seen to have far overshadow 
ed the troubles of the moment. 

Some sleep has been lost in the line 
of duty, but those midnight vigils have 
not been unprofitable. Experience has 
been gained that will be of lifetime 
value. In this respect La Vie has had 
all the benefits of an academic course 
differing from most of them mainly 
in its extreme practicality. 

Worries about material and make- 
up, headlines and half tones have 
been plentiful, of course. But it has 
been a real pleasure to edit the stud- 
ent weekly with the cooperation which 
has come from the staff-members, 
faculty and administration, and the 
student-body as a whole. 

Because of the cooperation of the 
first we have been able to adequately 
cover for the most part all campus 
activity. Faculty cooperation has en- 
abled us to maintain a free college 
press, subject to no censorship what- 
soever. Student cooperation, along 
with the help of the staff and admin- 
istration, has enabled us to present a 
record number of those little items so 
dear to the heart of an editor, scoops. 

So it is with real regret that we 
relinquish the pen to our successors 
and wish them success in wielding it. 

. Supplement 

La Vie is happy to present as an 
extra feature of this issue the annual 
Green Blotter supplement. It has 
been printed in the form of a small 
magazine, instead of the usual full- 
sized La Vie page; and it is the hope 
of the editors that this innovation 
will make the supplement more at- 
tractive and more interesting. 

All the material in it is the origin- 
al work of members of the Green Blot- 
ter, although of course they have 
taken author's liberty in disguising 
their identity under pen names. 

Although the Club this year has 
spent most of its time working on a 
play, the members did make an extra 
effort and by their contributions made 
it possible to produce their annual 
supplement. La Vie is happy to have 
the Inkspots as "guest writers" this 
week. Turn to the little green book- 
let, if you have not done so already, 
and read it from beginning to end. 
You'll enjoy it.

day studentettes 

By Wanda Ride 
We day-studentettes want ALL the 
ci-edit we deserve — especially the 
frosh. When Liz Kerr read last week's 
column, she was highly incensed to 
see that Betty Ann Rutherford was 
the only gal given credit for doing 
the spring housecleaning in the D. S. 
R. Just to satisfy Liz, here's the 
honorable mention list: Marian and 
Ruth Krieder, Betty Johns, Louise 
Keller, Louise Bowman and chief agi- 
tator Liz Kerr! 


That blonde senior from Harrisburg, 
or Paxtang, to be more specific, is 
trying — oh! so hard to disentangle 
herself from a mesh woven of Georges 
I, II and HI. And don't think we're 
referring to troubles with kings in a 
history course; we mean Georges fol- 
lowing the course of all young swains 
in the springtime. 


It's funny to see how Mary Ellen 
Klopp's abiiity m archery varies witn 
the persons observing her. Her score 
is top-notch until Mr. Steele comes 
along, then the arrows might be f ounu 
anywnere but on the disc. If anyone 
can otter an explanation, see Wanda 
Kiue. She's curious! 


The program committee for the 
Day Student's Hop broke through 
with some real novelty as far as me 
programs are concerned. They are 
maue in the form of — oh, well! it 
you're really interested, you'll buy one, 
come to the dance and see for your- 
oeu what they're like. 


Phyllis Deitzler and Marjorie Kish- 
paugh have been suffering under the 
chauffeurs hip of one Verdun Tritch. 
tie means well, but, after all, the 
strenuous life of a day student can't 
long endure under an hour-per-day 
nervous strain such as Tritch's driv- 
ing is sure to cause. 


Jean Anger certainly must think 
the freshman sho' nuff eager to tackle 
the psychology course next year. Pok- 
ing her head out from under a table 
wnere she was looking for the miss- 
ing text, Jeanie accused all the pore 
111* freshmen of snitching her book. 
That's a plenty conscientious crowd 
— but it never crosses bridges before 
coming to them. 


On Tuesday, Mary Touchstone was 
yet feeling the effects of the banquet 
on Monday. As she looked longingly 
at the gals gobbling grub, she explain- 
ed dolefully that she must forego her 
lunch to maintain her balance of cal- 
ories. She ran way over her limit 
at the banquet.

fashion notes 

by Styliste 

Some say Spring is really here, but 
better hang on to a few of those hea- 
vier winter coats for cold nights, at 
least for a short while longer. Don t 
be pessimistic, though, with all the 
pretty spring styles featured in the 
women's apparel shops, Mr. Weather- 
man can't hold out on us too long. 

Linen is going to be very good and 
so popular this spring and summer. 
Have you seen the cute, tricky strip s 
and colors in it for morning, after- 
noon, tea, dinner, and dance? They 
are really stunning and quite com- 
fortable for warmer weather. Don't 
worry about the wrinkles — the new, 
uncrushable linens are really uncrush- 

Stripes are here in full swing. They 
run all directions and give all kindo 
of effects. Stripes always make ycu 
look youthful and dressed for all oc- 
casions. They are unusually smart in 
accordian pleated skirts. Candy 
stripes, particularly red and white, 
will be seen very frequently on th- 
dance floors this year. 

Plaids are back again. Brightly col- 
ored bolero jackets with two-toned 
frocks are featured for campus wear. 
I inely plaided, cotton, tailored dress:- 
es a re perfect for class room wear. 

Flowered prints and polka dots in 
silk and rayon are just the thing f^r 
afternoon and dinner frocks. They al- 
ways make thei<" own -r appear cool 
and unflustered no matter how high 
*he temperature may be. Tulips are 
tops in flower designs this year. No 
one knows why, but you'll find them 
in dresses, blouses, and even hankies. 

Slacks are being worm, rather than 
shorts for sports nowadays. Gabar- 
dine is as popular among the women, 
it seems, as among the men. Tailored 
four piece suits — jacket, slack, skirt, 
and blouse — in black and white are 
really handsome and indispensable to 
any wardrobe. 

Are we going to be unstylish here 
at L. V. C. forever? Wedgies, so good 
for campus near, are seen very infre- 
quently. Congratulations to you styi 
\sh coeds; razzberries to you old-fash- 
ioned ladies who don't realize style 
plus comfort when it does appear. 
Maybe the dressy wedgies are a hit 
nard to get used to, but those for 
sport are so smart, and much more 
comfortable, and better for your feet 
than those accepted saddle shoes, 
v* hat are we waiting for? 

WHICH ONE, PLEASE? We have no 
telephone calls wrapped up on our 
shelves all ready to deliver. Each call 
you make must be "made to order for 
immediate delivery". Yet we can 
connect you to anyone of 20 MILLION

^ t jje end of an enjoyable year 
c ° nie rts columnist for La Vie. When 
as sp01 enjoyable, we mean it was 

ay to us > although perhaps not 
u" Yio have read the opinions ex- 
tfl >'° U , here weekly. At this time we 
P reSS6 t0 thank all those who in any- 
* ish i( j e d us in gaining our material 
*' J 'he publication. We especially wish 
cognize the cooperation of Direc- 
•° re< i athletics Jerry Frock who was 
t0r °dingly helpful on all occasions, 
a parting gesture we wish to 
end the fine work of all the ath- 
c0inin teams which performed in the 
let .' e C f space of the past year. Altho 
bfl baseball team of last season was 
th ! excessively gifted with the knack 
Twinning, we feel that we were not 
ted in the matter of thrills in any 
° the contests that we witnessed. The 
■ of the coming season promises 
f develop into one of the finest ever 
lied out by a Lebanon Valley coach. 
xhe pitching staff is well-balanced, 
n d the offense seems to have been 
awakened under the tutelage of Coach 

Bill UHery. 

The tennis team of last year was ot 
an excellent calibre and there is 
doubt whether the one for the com- 
ing season can possibly develop into 
as smooth a combination as. that one 
composed of Bud Umberger and Stew- 
ie Shapiro of the last campaign. The 
call issued by Manager Shapiro for 
all tennis aspirants was answered by 
a much larger group than in previous 
seasons which shows that the racket 
game is becoming more popular 
among the students. 

The typical April weather has 
slowed up the progress of the condi- 
tioning of the college courts to a large 
extent, but if the weather should 
prove favorable enough during the 
coming weeks the boys should be able 
to play their scheduled matches on 
their own courts. 

Although the mushball season was 
held up a week by the wintry blasts 
last Saturday the gala opening this 
week promises to be even more im- 
pressive than that one proposed last 
week. We hope that all the fellows 
will be interested enough to turn out 
for the games when scheduled and 
show their true sportsmanship by 
abiding by the decisions of the um- 
pires as agreed on by the contestants.

First Call Answered 
By Sixteen Netsters 

When Stewie Shapiro posted the 
first call for tennis candidates last 
week he realized that as manager and 
captain of this year's team he has his 
work cut out for him. The loss of cap- 
tain Umberger and others of last 
year's team left gaps in the line-up 
which will be difficult to fill. Sixteen 
or more eager courtsters turned out 
last Friday and others have signified 
their intention of reporting for the 

Shapiro, of course, leads the list ox 
last year's squad who reported. His 
dependable and steady play last year 
was responsible for the numerous vic- 
tories. Stewie is equally valuable at. 
a doubles player, teaming up with 
Umberger last year and losing only 
one match. Danny Seiverling, senior, 
will probably take over the number 2 
spot and team up with Shapiro ^or 
the doubles matches. Sammy Grimm, 
junior, will undoubtedly pull down the 
number three position in the squad. 
His play, while not brilliant, is heady. 

It is a toss-up as to who will fill 
the other three positions with odds 
being placed on Ed Creeger, a junior, 
with an orthodox and steady style, 
Carl Sherk, a sophomore, who may 
oevelop into a doubles partner for 
Grimm, and Bob Sarge, another soph, 
who is reporting for the first tune 
this year. 

Others reporting for the squad in- 
clude Dick Weagley, senior; Bob Gu<- 
nivan, Sam Gittlen, and Dick Hart- 
man, sophomores; and Bill Gollam, 
Ralph Lentz, Steve Metro, Cyril Lu- 
tle Al Fritsche, and Marvin Detam- 
bel, freshmen. Very few of the latter 
have had any experience with Lentz 
and Gollam appearing the best pros- 

Practices were held last week at 
Hershey and others were held at the 
same location Wednesday and Thurs- 
day of this week. If dry and warmer 
weather puts in its appearance this 
week some of the college courts may 
be gotten into shape for real work 
next week.

Six Men Win Letters In 
1940 Basketball Season 

At a special meeting of the basket 
ball squad called by Coach Intrieri 
the team named an honorary captain 
for the past court t campaign, and at 
the same time na: ie<l its leader for 
the next season. 

Robert Artz, a senior, was elected 
captain of the last year outfit by a 
unanimous vote. Artz, who did not 
see much action this year because of 
a knee injury obtained in football, 
will be remembered for his sophomore 
form at which time he set the league 
ablaze with his spirited play and un- 
canny shooting. 

Odd, but interesting, was the elec- 
tion of a captain for next year, in 
which Ralph Mease, roommate of 
Artz, was named to the post by the 
same unanimity. Mease was the fair- 
haired second year man who captur- 
ed the scoring honors of the loop, 
tallying ten more points than his 
nearest rival. Part of the only sopho- 
more squad in the league, Mease 
teamed up with Schillo to be the in- 
strumental factors in the L. V. 
squad's fairly successful season. 

Coach Intrieri, at the same meeting, 
announced those players who earned 
their letters in basketball the past 
year. Included in the group were 
Robert Artz, Ralph Mease, Ed. Schil- 
lo, Steve Kubisen, Don Staley, Ted 

president of the Board of Babson's 
Statistical Organization. During the 
World War he served as Director- 
general of Information and Educa- 
tion. From 1936 to 1938 he was Mod- 
erator of the National Council of 
Congregational - Christian Churches 
He has also become a Fellow of the 
Royal Statistical Society of London. 
The subject for the commencement 
address has not yet been announced.

According to the "mad chemist" 
George Smee, who thinks he has been 
treated rather roughly in this column 
for the past several weeks, I am noth- 
ing but a propagandist. In other words 
he would rather have you believe that 
he prefers "brewing a batch" (pet or- 
ganic chem expression) to the ladies 
anyday. Confidentially yours, I do not 
know what he would do if there were 
no windows in the "lab." 

After the L. V. male quartet had 
finished a successful program at 
Brownstown, Luke Hains, the accom- 
panist was asked by several of the 
congregation if he was studying for 
the ministry. They based their conclu- 
sions on the fact that he had appear- 
ed so pious when he walked up to the 
piano. Those personally acquainted 
with the Reverend Hains should ap 
preciate this report. One wonders if 
this accounts for his regular attend 
ance in chapel of late — or could it be 
that twenty-three overcuts have more 

At a recent inspection of the local 
division of the Pennsylvania Nation- 
al Guai-ds, in which several of our 
more virile students are members, it 
seems that Johnny Yingst has cam 
mitted a military "faux pas." The 
regiment stood at attention before a 
Federal inspecting officer when our 
friend Sergeant Yingst dropped his 
magazine to the floor with an embar- 
rassing clatter. At the same inspection 
Private Ted Youse was reviewed at 
the switchboard, and he maintains 
that the most frequent answer to 
questions was "I don't know, sir."

Neutral Countries Topic 
For I.R.C. Cabinet 

Problems concerning the Balkans 
and other neutral countries will be 
the topic for discussion for the I. R. 
C. cabinet meeting tonight. The pres- 
ent European situation makes th'.s 
question a pertinent one. Jane Ehr- 
hart will open the meeting by a dis- 
cussion of the historical development 
of the law of neutrality and the rights 
of neutrals. Present activities on the 
part of both Germany and England 
make it difficult to ascertain just what 
are the rights of neutrals and to what 
extent a warring nation may go, be- 
fore a neutral nation is to take of- 

Afterwards the following people

these discussions the political, eco- 
nomic, military, naval, and commer- 
cial aspects of these countries will be 
considered. After this there will be a 
general round-table talk in order to 
help each person grasp the situation 
in Europe as it is today. 

Biology Club Gives 
Dr. Derickson Party 

Last Thursday evening, a well at- 
tended monthly meeting of the Biol- 
oyg Club was held in the Biology lec- 
ture room. Bob Mays presented a re- 
port on "Heritage of the Bounty," a 
book of considerable repute. The club's 
ministerial member analyzed this 
book. Earl Reber spoke to the audi- 
ence from behind a barrage of test 
tubes, bottles, and steaming vats on 
the subject of "Glandular Extracts ' 
and "Insulin." Reber based his talk 
on his experiments and investigations 
in those particular subjects. 

Following the scientific phase of 
the meeting, the members adjourned 
to the west "lab," which was decorat- 
ed for a birthday surprise party f/>r 
Dr. Derickson. The zoological theme 
predominated among the decorations, 
even to the place cards. Refresh- 
ments, including pieces cut from a 
large birthday cake, were served. 

At the conclusion of his presented 
to Dr. Derickson a small, useful gift 
from the club. In accepting the club's 
gift and remembrance of his birth- 
day Dr. Derickson delivered a short 
address of thanks.

societies are making plans for a joint 
session to be held in Philo Hall on 
Friday evening, April 26. All the col- 
lege students are invited to dance to 
the music provided by that old stand-

refreshments will be served. As yet, 
only tentative arrangements have been 
made, but both societies are working

Beittel Is Named 
Editor Of "La Vie" 
By Faculty Group 

{Continued from page 1) 

The new editor will assume his pub- 
lishing duties with next week's issue 
of La Vie and as yet has not announc- 
ed his staff of assistants. It is not 
expected that Beittel will add many 
new staff members, since freshmen 
have already been taken on. The 
positions of one sports editor to suc- 
ceed Robert Dinsmore, and a circula- 
tion manager as a successor to War- 
ren Sechrist remain to be filled on the 
editorial board. 

It has been the policy of La Vie 
Collegievne to announce the change in 
editorship about five weeks before the 
close of the school year, in order that 
the newly-elected editor might make 
use of his predecessor for help in 
launching his own publication. Then 
too, the new editor is able to take ad- 
vantage of the relative wealth of news 
material in the spring and near the 
end of school.

Old Love 

Old love is like an old favorite frock, 

Faded, dependable, yet weary 

Of the monotonous task 

Of assuming the same contours 

Year by year. 

Old love is like an old favorite frock 
That one adverse to sentiment 
Disdains to hoard as a treasure, 
And yet scorns to discard 
As tho' indifferent.

Late Spring 

From bleak and snowbound towers 
Still press the legions of cold 
Flinging dark and dismal missiles 
Of a siege long since grown old. 

Misty snowflakes whirl around, 
Cold dead branches faintly sway, 
And from yon distant frozen stream 
Whirling currents thro' ice packs play. 

But slowly moving thro' the foe 
There stirs an ever potent force, 
Long dormant, yet with subtle urging 
Calls forth glad spring from ancient 

Splintered to melting drops, 

An ice painted spear falls, 

And notes of conquest surge from all, 

As o'er the hill a robin calls.

A Prayer From James 

(AGE 8) 
by Rocelyn 

Hello God. Are you there? I can't 
hear you answer, but I guess that's cause 
you live so far away. This is James 
Brown on Duncan Street. I don't guess 
you remember me — but I talk to you ev- 
ery once in a while. My name is James 
like I said but I wish you'd call me Jim 
— it would kind of make us pals. I guess 
you think it's sort of funny me talkin' 
to you in the middle of the day like this 
— but, God, I got a problem. I would 
a asked Mom, but she ain't home and I 
got a know the answer quick. 

Well — listen good, God — 'cause I have 
to hurry — the guys are waitin' for me up 
on the lot. You know the one back of 
the garage on Third Street? We have 
the best team on our block and we're 
playin' the guys from the next block this 
"after." That's what I want to ask you 
about. I guess you heard about what a 
good pitcher I am. I know you live far 
away, but they even had my name in the 
Stoneville paper an' that's more 'an 20 
miles from here. 

Well, do you remember the other day 
when we was playin' Muggs and his 
gang from over on the hill? It was a 
pretty good game, wasn't it, God — even 
if my arm wasn't loose enough. You re- 
member when I pitched a quick one to 
Mike our catcher? He didn't get it and 
it went right in old Miss Powers' house. 
She doesn't like us to play ball in the 
lot and she kept our ball. We just had 
to get it back, so we sent Little Gus in. 

I know he's awful little, but all us fel- 
laws was busy, so we couldn't go in. Miss 
Powers is the meanest person in town. I 
guess you don't know her cause I guess 
she don't have to ask nobody nothin'! 
She made Little Gus sit down in her 
cellar until it was time to go home for 

An' he's so little and kind of 'fraid of 
things — an' anyway there's rats an' all 
kinds of things crawlin' 'round down 
there. When he came out all us fellers 
was standin' 'round waitin' for him. He 
was pretty white and kind of nervous, 
but he wasn't bleedin' or nothin'. Just 
to make up, our gang made him helper 
to Pinkie — he plays short stop. Pinkie I 
mean. Do you think that makes things 
all right? 'Cause you see I really threw 
that ball in the window. 

You aren't mad at us, are you, God? 
Us sure do need you to pull for us. What 
1 wanted to ask you was. Well, God, you 
see we were playin' this after and the 
ball went in Miss Powers house again. 
What I wanted to say, God — Will it be 
all right with you if we send Little Gus 
in again? Amen. 

Coastal Storm . . . 

by Ase 

Have you ever seen the grasping hulks 
of waves gnawing greedily at a hope- 
lessly stolid rocky coast? With rever- 
berating splashes they dash wildly, fren- 
ziedly against what seems immobile. 
Ruthlessly they never-ceasingly pound, 
pound, dash, dash the stones. Persistent- 
ly, persistently, hungrily, hungrily, like 
some men they stretch clutching hands 
for more. Foam garnishes their peaks 
and then it is rolled under to mix again 
with some of the ocean. Gray, slate- 
gray is the sky, Gray, green-gray is the 
water. Gray, brownish-gray is the cliff. 
Spray dampens the air. A briney smell 
is borne by the wind. How soon will the 
storm be pouring down upon us? 

Miss Linda 

by Vernon 

She was always known as Miss Linda. 
1 do not recall her ever being addressed 
by any other name, and the title of 
"Miss" was never dropped even by those 
more intimate with her. It is possible 
that she acquired this name in much the 
same manner that a boy acquires a nick- 
name which he carries throughout his 
life. However, I believe that in some 
way she suggested its origin and insisted 
upon its usage. Regardless of the way 
by which she received her title it was 
peculiarly fitting to her. She never en- 
tertained any thoughts of marriage. 
Perhaps there are several reasons for 
her attitude on this subject. She was 
never very well at any time in her life, 
which fact undoubtedly influenced her 
very strongly. The most serious obsta- 
cle in her pathway toward marital bliss, 
although she would never admit that this 
or any other obstacle existed for her, 
may be found in her personal appear- 
ance. Miss Linda was not endowed with 
many feminine graces. She had a figure 
that a professional wrestler might be 
proud of. And she had a voice to match 
her figure. When she decided to sin&, 
as she frequently did when she was lone- 
ly or sad, the neighborhood in general 
was well informed of the fact. The man- 
ner in which she bellowed "No Longer 
Lonely" or "Sweet Hour of Prayer" was 
worth hearing; provided, of course, that 
one was not compelled to listen too long 
or at- too close a range. Her features 
were definitely not attractive. A broad 
expanse of forehead was accentuated by 
her hair, or the lack of it, which she 
brushed straight back and fastened at 
the back of her head in a little knot. Her 
eyes were dark, large, and rather deep- 
set, while her nose, which she often 
laughed at herself, was of such promi 
nence as to command one's attention im- 
mediately. Her large mouth was sup- 
potted by a decidedly firm chin, from 
which dangled wisps of hair, 

Strangely enough, no one regarded 
Miss Linda as an old maid. She remind- 
ed one more of a mother who has raised 
a large family at the expense of her 
health, and was forced to spend her re- 
maining years in less active service 
about the home. She knew long before 
anyone else the impending marriages and 
births within the community. Frequent- 
ly she had a hand in the love affairs of 
the young people of the church, and in- 
variably after an engagement was an- 
nounced, she was the first to plan a show- 
er for the bride-to-be. 

Miss Linda's greatest joy in life was 
to be active in the church. In her early 
years she was so engaged in the various 
activities of the church and Sunday 
school that complaints were heard that 
she "tried to run things." In later years 
when her health failed she continued her 
activity by an indirect method. Although 
she could not attend services or assist in 
the many tasks which delighted her, she 
always expressed her opinion upon every 
issue that came up in the church. This 
she did through her many intimate 
friends. No one wanted to offend Miss 
Linda by doing anything which she op- 
posed in the church. When she resigned 
her Sunday school class, she automatic- 
ally appointed her successor. She had 
charge of the Cradle Roll department for 
p number of years after she was con- 
fined to her home. Her influence in 
church circles was considerable in view 
of her circumstances. More than once 
her dictatorial manner, and insistence 
upon things being done "her way, ' 
caused trouble for church officials. Still 
they went on doing her bidding either 
from a genuine desire to please her, or 
in order to avoid her wrath. 

One day in mid-August as she sat, fan 
in hand, beside the window in her rocker, 
she seemed particularly worried about 
something. She said nothing about what- 
ever was troubling her, and her reticence 
confirmed what her wrinkled forehead 
and half-closed eyes proclaimed to those 
who knew her. The heat served to aggra- 


A tale of hearts, a tale of lives, 
And all went 'round and 'round, 
There was no song, there was no shade, 
Just jumbled light and sound. 
There was no thought, there was no 

Just chaos, wind, and air. 

There was no smile, no whisper low — 

Just solitude and despair. 

— Nancee 

I would my song might fly on winged 

pinions far, 
Or fall like the gentle rain of heaven's 

gifts to men, 
Or whisper through the trees like the 

gentle wind, 
Or shout in the storm and thunderous 


Or melt like the song of the lark into 

men's consciousness, — ■ 
But then it were no longer my song. 

— Nancce 

I felt your fingers upon my cheek, 

I swam in the depths of your eyes, 

I felt the beat of your heart, the fleeting 

pressure of your lips; 
And, for the first time, knew joy. 

— Nancee 

My soul cried aloud for joy — 

And God gave it tears. 

My hands reached forth for gold — 

And found the dust of the earth. 

My eyes looked up to the stars — 

And saw the film of darkness. 

My mind groped about for surety — 

And found a puzzling morass. 

My whole being sought out life — 

And was caught in the sands of time.

\ate her condition. Her sister Verdi was 
a high strung individual with an en- 
larged desire to please people. Usually 
she attended Miss Linda constantly. 
Asking in short, crisp sentences if there 
was anything she wanted; could she fix 
her pillow better; did she want the ra- 
dio on, or, how about a nice glass of or- 
ange juice now? Today, however, she 
kept a bit aloof, not wishing to be the 
cause of the violent explosion which 
threatened any moment to take place. 
When Miss Linda was angry, as when 
she sang, the world knew about it; and 
woe to the person who was the cause 
thereof, especially if they were on the 
premises at the time. 

As the hours passed, Miss Linda grew 
a bit quieter. Once or twice she began 
to hum snatches of well-known hymns. 
Suddenly a knock was heard at the side 
door. Miss Linda called in stentorian 
voice to her sister to answer the door. 
She happened to be upstairs at that mo- 
ment. Hastily she rearranged her dress 
as she came down stairs; her heels mak- 
ing a clatter against the uncarpeted 
stairs which sheltered the quiet of the 
household. In short, quick steps she made 
her way to the door. 

"Good afternoon, Mr. Thomas; come 
right in," she said at the same time she 
unfastened the hook of the screen door. 
"I think Miss Linda is expecting you," 
she added. 

The person addressed was a tall man 
with a swarthy complexion, and who ap- 
peared to be of about middle age. He 
stepped softly into the room, looked 
about him for a moment and then re- 
plied, "Yes, there is something which 
Miss Linda wants to talk over with me, 
I guess. Warm today again, isn't it?" 

Verdi nodded, then hastened to say, 
"You'll find Miss Linda in the front 

The visitor slowly made his way across 
the room toward a doorway which led 
into the living room. He wiped his fore- 
head with his handkerchief as he pro- 
ceeded. As he entered the room a loud

voice bellowed, "You're the man I want 
to see." 

Mr. Thomas continued to wipe his 
perspiring face and forehead. Finally 
he said, "I guess you'd like to talk to me 
about that class of yours." 

Although Miss Linda had long since 
given up her Sunday school class and 
appointed her successor, she still con- 
sidered it her class. 

"Yes," answered Miss Linda. "What's 
this I hear about you're going to break 
up my class." This she spoke in slow, 
cautious tones in a half-inquiring, half- 
demanding manner. 

"Well," replied the besieged Mr. Thom- 
as, "some of those girls are about iid 
enough to be transferred to the Ladies' 
Class, and we figured since we're degrad- 
ing the school they ought to be moved 
along now to make room for the young- 
er ones coming up." 

"I've had that class ten years this Oc- 
tober, and they've been together all that 
time. & don't want them split up now.' 

"Do you want to hold up the program 
of the whole Sunday school just because 
of your class?" Mr. Thomas was becom- 
ing bolder now. He knew he had to think 
quick or he was lost. "After all," he con- 
tinued, "it's going to help the girls to 
be in an older class. I thought you would 
be in favor of the idea." 

"Jim Thomas, you knew I wouldn't be 
in favor of the idea before you brought 
it up at the last meeting. Why didn't 
you see me about it beforehand?" 

Mr. Thomas had known all along thr.t 
opposition to his program would come 
from Miss Linda and her confederates. 
This is why he purposely did not see 
her about it before he brought the mat- 
ter up at the business meeting the night 

Seeing his delay in answering ner 
question Miss Linda proceeded to tell 
him in no uncertain language what siie 
thought of him and his program for rc- 
grading the school. 

"You're trying something which won't 
work in our school," she said. "That 
scheme's been tried long before you ev-r 
thought of it. What's more if the reoi; 
of them up there are too dumb to see 
through it all that's their business, but 
you nor anyone else will never break up 
my class." 

Mr. Thomas listened attentively, ap- 
preciatively. - He had one more shot lo 
fire. He said, "Well, Miss Linda, the 
whole program's been voted for, and 
There's nothing can be done about k 


Miss Linda stared at him. The hairs 
on her chin swayed ominously. Her ey r -s 
snapped. Suddenly she thrust out, "I 
don't care who's voted for it or who a 
not. That's my class and I'll have the 
say in what's to be done with it." She 
waited a moment for her words to si ik 
in, then added, "All them girls are 
against this idea, and their parents are 
too. I talked to Mrs. Briggs, and Mrs. 
Swavely, and Mrs. Herne, and all of 
them says her girl stays just where she 
is or she ain't comin' to Sunday school 
no more. If you want to break up that 
class, you'll go the whole way or y u 
won't go at all. I have my rights, and 
my friends know it." 

Mr. Thomas mopped his forehead 
again. He was beaten ; he knew that. He 
could only accept defeat gracefully. 

"Well, if you feel that way about it, ' 
he said rather slowly, "I guess we'd bet- 
ter make some kind of exception for 
your class. You've been a faithful teach-

Of the joys of my heart, 
I pray, be just; 
Take not my friends, 
For there life ends.

er to those girls. I'll see what I can do 
for you." 

By this time Miss Linda was crying a 
bit, partly due to her excitement, avd 
partly because she wanted to enforce her 
last statement by a dramatic effort. She 
looked up and said, "I know what's best 
for my girls." In a sobbing voice she 
added, "I may not be long for this world, 
but as long as I am here I'll look after 
that class." 

Mr. Thomas leaned over and patted 
her shoulder, saying, "I'm sure every- 
thing will turn out all right, Miss Linda. 
You can depend upon me to do my best.' 

As the screen door closed behind M'\ 
Thomas' retreating figure Miss Linda bei 
lowed in a tone that sounded victorious- 
ly, "I guess I told him where to get off.

Old Rocking Chair 

by Maude 

Seventy-five years ago today — it seems 
only a short while since then — Mr. Lewis 
sat here rocking back and forth, now 
fast, now slow, as he nervously awaited 
word from the room upstairs. I was 
thrown into that corner by his excited 
limbs as he rushed away at the first 
creak of the door. That afternoon the 
nurse put me back in my place, but I 
didn't see Mr. Lewis again for a few 
days. I overheard a neighbor as she mov- 
ed me in a leisurely sort of gossipy way 
that the new baby girl was a very fine 
child. Then I realized why there had been 
such excitement. Several weeks later 
found me trying my best to move gently 
and quietly wUh Mrs. Lewis and little 
Joan in her arms. Each afternoon and 
evening they came until I was so profic- 
ient at baby rocking I didn't have to 
think about it at all. 

Time came and passed in its usual has- 
ty fashion and before I knew it Baby 
Joan sat here without her mother. Her 
feet didn't reach nearly to the floor, but 
she pushed her little back against my 
big one and I cooperated. However, I 
did not use all my strength because 1 
didn't want to push her to the floor. She 
never knew she wasn't doing it all alone. 
Little Joan's legs kept growing longer 
and gradually I could rock with more and 
more speed. I must confess I was a lit- 
tle too hasty. One day Joan wasn't push- 
ing very hard, so thinking I would help 
her I pushed harder than I had been and 
the little girl slid right down on the floor. 


Well, she cried and cried until I almost 
cried too. 

For some time after that Joan was 
afraid to sit on me. After a while she 
forgot my unkindness and tried again. 
Before I had gotten over attempting to 
restrain my unruly legs when they want- 
ed to rock faster, Joan had learned to 
control me of her own accord. Naturally 
it was a blow at first but I gradually be- 
came accustomed to it and grew to love 
her touch which was usually gentle. 

But O my, Joan started going to school 
with all those rough children and do 
you know, she became just like them. She 
didn't care how hard or how fast she 
rocked me. There I was unable to stop 
her even though my joints ached until I 
could scarcely bear it. All I could do was 
creak — to no avail, for she could not hear 
me above her chatter and laughter. My 
one consolation was that she seemed to 
be enjoying it. 

As the years passed I began noticing 
a change for the better in my little com- 
panion. She really wasn't very little 
any longer because of course all children 
grow up and she was far from an excep- 
tion. I felt how Joan was becoming more 
lady-like too. She must have realized I 
could not stand harsh treatment much 
longer because I didn't have to hurry to 
keep up with her. I loved to have her 
cuddle up on my lap and read the books 
she delighted in. Sometimes she fell 
asleep and I rested too. Sometimes when 
she was excited she moved me jerkily, 
sometimes not at all. I learned to rec- 
ognize her moods. 

Much to my sorrow Joan went away to 
live somewhere else. I missed her great- 
ly. I did see her a few times when she 
visited her parents. And joy of joys, 
she sat here to rock her little baby to 
sleep. I saw after a number of years 
that Joan looked very much like her 
mother used to look and she moved me 
and put her hands on my arms just as the 
grown-up ladies did. I liked to think there 
was something different about her man- 
ner. I seemed to feel the same things 
she did when she was a young girl. 


Life is but loss for gain; 
Money given gets possessions, 
Happiness bestowed brings happiness, 
Having loved we find love, 
Losing our life we gain life.

Death Of Puppy Love 

I must be getting old and gray — 
I don't fall in love anymore; 
I'm really in a dreadful way — 
This never has happened before. 

Time was when every passing day 
Brought a bigger, handsomer flame; 
But of all men now I can truthfully say 
My reactions are the same. 

Just yesterday A smiled at me 
My heart got off the beat, 
And the day before a word from B 
Left me wobbling on my feet. 

But today the same two were around — 
They smiled — I smiled right back; 
My feet stayed firmly on the ground, 
My heart never missed a whack. 

My life moves in monotony 
From day to uneventful day — 
I never fall in love — ah, me, 
I MUST be getting old and gray. 

Marlon, B. H., D. S. R. 

Things went on like this for time I 
can't count. Then there was a sudden 
change. Joan was here all the time now, 
but I missed her parents. I realized 
after a time that they must have passed 
on and Joan had come to take their place. 
I was so glad to have her. She seemed 
to like having me pretty much too. 

That must have been at least twenty- 
five years ago. It seems but a few days. 
They call her Grandma now and some- 
how that name seems to fit her very well. 
I never worry about my joints aching and 
I don't have to creak for a warning. 


. . . Aunt Mary 

by Piergint 

Having an Aunt Mary isn't an un- 
usual distinction. The common use of 
that name added to the fecundity of 
mankind which produces so many aunts 
makes it inevitable that there be quite 
a few Aunt Marys. One of the most 
famous of all is Emerson's Aunt Mary, 
but he didn't have anything on me. I 
too had an Aunt Mary. 

She really was my father's aunt and 
my great-aunt, but she was Aunt Mary 
to everybody, even to her own sister. 
Sometimes she was called Aunt Mary 
Tillman to distinguish her from other 
Marys in our family group, and there 
were a number of them, but that differ- 
entiation was unnecessary most of the 
time. She had never been married; I 
believe she had been too busy all her life 
for that, and as far back as I can re- 
member she had seemed at least seventy 
years old to me. Deep-seated scruples 
prevented her from revealing her true 
age, however, and she countered the 
most ingenious attempts at discovery- 
One persistent census-taker was set 
aback by the response, "twenty-one .... 
and some." The second part he added 
himself but that was all the closer he 
got to the truth and he wasn't even luke- 

Aunt Mary's hair had turned grey 
before my mind began to notice such de- 
tails, and the way in which she wore it, 
in the small waves and curls of a by- 
gone day, made her fine features seem 
even more delicate. She was tall and 
erect with a spareness of figure that was 
a family trait. "He has Tillman blood 
in him," they used to say of me, instead 
of calling me skinny, which would have 
been less euphemistic and more accurate. 
Knowing that I had this in common 
with Aunt Mary made me almost proud 
of the fact that I was fifteen pounds 
underweight. Didn't she always say, "A 
lean dog for a long chase?" She herself 
was the best example of her philosophy, 

LinesWrittenAt7 : 15A.M. 

My arms, my legs, my heart, my soul 

Cry out against it. 

Why should I my funeral toll 

If I resent it? 

And yet I must — I know I must 
Squirm as I will, 

And though my bones should turn to duot 
I can't be still. 

This horrible deed — it must be done, 
'Though it makes me die. 
That beastly old alarm has rung — 
In bed I can not lie! 

— Rocelyn 

for she had never had time to sit down 
and gain a few pounds. 

Born into a large family on a small 
farm she had been "hired out" at an 
early age and had worked hard all her 
life, serving as housekeeper on the 
largest farm in the township at a time 
when each farm was an independent 
community in itself. Then at length, 
after having saved her money and re- 
ceived a small inheritance, she had 
bought a home in town and was living 
there alone when my first memory of 
her began. It was this spirit of inde- 
pendence and self-reliance that was per- 
haps her outstanding trait. For twenty- 
years she shoveled her own coal, cleaned 
the snow off her own pavement, and rest- 
ed uneasily if she had to spend just one 
night away from her home. It was her 
castle and she rarely left it for any 
longer than a day, except for yearly 
visits to a sister in a distant city. 

Aunt Mary spent many an afternoon 
at our home, and it was a great joy to 
discover her there when I returned from 
school. She never considered a visit a 
pure social duty either, for she mended 
socks, cooked dinner, washed the dishes, 
and never let us youngsters do anything 
ourselves that she could do for us. Even 
then she wasn't quite satisfied and was 
afraid that perhaps she hadn't done 

enough. Always a . sympathetic listener 
to my griefs and an enthusiastic ac- 
claimer of my successes, I believe a 
scholastic setback affected her more than 
it did me. At least she had more time 
to worry about it, and she was adept at 

Evenings spent with Aunt Mary were 
lots of fun, for such things occurred 
when Mother wanted an opportunity to 
go to church or otherwise to forget the 
burdens of controlling two growing chil- 
dren. Aunt Mary played our games with 
as much enthusiasm as we did, be it 
Blind Man's Bluff or Church; and her 
applause at the appropriate places en- 
livened many a childhood sermon and 
made the young preacher feel good. Yet, 
no matter how late the hour when 
Mother returned, she would never ac- 
cept an invitation to remain over-night, 
in spite of our promies to drive over 
and fix hei fire for her. She refused to 
be escorted or driven home. "I'll scoot 
over there in no time," she used to say, 
'though it was five blocks and the night 
was often cold with perhaps snow blow- 
ing about or rain descending in torrents. 

Aunt Mary was always able to see 
the humorous side of a situation and 
was even better at creating the humor 
itself. Her favorite story was a prank 
she played on Daddy, when he was quite 
small and was visiting her over Easter. 
She had built a nest out of hay and 
placed it behind the house the evening 
before Easter, and early the next morn- 
ing they both sneaked carefully out of 
the house to see whether the Easter 
rabbit had been there. Sure enough, he 
had, and wonder of wonders, he was still 
sitting on the nest! "Ssshh," Aunt Mary 
whispered, "We'll see if we can catch 
him." So with apron held up she slipped 
up on the nest, followed by a boy with 
popping eyes and pounding heart. Down 
swooped the apron and the bunny was a 
prisoner; but when she cautiously lifted 
it again the rabbit didn't move! "Oh, 
we've killed him," she cried. The small 
lad gasped bewildered at the news and 

burst into hysterical tears when the full 
import broke upon him. The Easter 
bunny dead? He was comforted with 
difficulty even after he had been assured 
that the rabbit was still alive and that 
this was only a plaster of Paris imi- 

Apparently limitless was Aunt Mary's 
stock of stories, most of them about 
people she had known back in the coun- 
try about her birthplace. 

Aunt Mary died soon after I came up 
to college as a freshman. Her pride 
bore her up until near the end and she 
steadily refused to leave her own home 
to come over to ours where she could 
be attended and taken care of more 
easily. But the spirit at last grew weary 
of fighting and broke. She asked Daddy 
to come for her one evening. She lived a 
little while longer, true, but not as Aunt 
Mary. The real Aunt Mary passed away 
in the darkness that autumn evening as 
she locked the door and left her home, 
not to return. 

When I Was One 
And Fifteen 

(Parody on "When I Was One And 

When I was one and fifteen; 

I heard the teachers say; 

"Give thought and time and energy, 

Don't fool your time away; 

Do your homework in the night, 

Keep your study periods free." 

But I was one and fifteen, 

No use to talk to me. 

When I was just past sixteen, 

I heard them say again, 

"The work that's left for study hall 

Is often incomplete, and then 

It sometimes causes heart aches 

And is often over due." 

And I am almost eighteen

Wide shoulders, narrow shoulders, 
sleek hair, curly hair, no hair, half a 
head, head and shoulders is the first 
view. Some lean their ears, some close 
them, and some relax them as the strains 
of Bach or Debussy filter through the 
air. But what of the front view? 

Miss Gotall is here, I see. Her shop- 
fresh gown of mousseline mustn't be 
wrinkled. Wave-set sculptured hair 
coudn't budge in a March wind but her 
frequent fingers may finally destroy the 
work of art. Yes, Miss Gotall, the gentle- 
man has noticed how you intelligently 
scanned the program, your profile is at 
the right angle for your aristocratic 
nose to show to advantage, you are using 
your hands gracefully. But do you 
realize its almost time for intermission? 

In the rear corner sits little Miss Meek 
drawn into her tortoise shell seat. Last 
year's suit shines from pressing, her 
eyes that are photographing every chord 
are hidden under her hat brim from 
which only wisps of hair are free. Miss 
Meek is having an enjoyable evening? 
Yes, but its third-handed having assum- 
ed all the composer as well as the artist 
has put into it. She doesn't know that a 
handsome young man is sitting beside 
her and has tried to initiate a conver- 
sation. Not that she's rude, understand, 
but she is entirely true to another love 
which is occuping her at present. 

Have you noticed the bald head emer- 
ging from a diamond studded stiff shirt 
in the second row? Mr. and Mrs Gusher 
owe their front seats to oil. Mr. Gusher 
is all too conscious of the music. Didn't 
that last chord played on his side by 
Mrs. Gusher's sharp elbow jolt him from 
the golf course to make him strain his 
eyes out over his frontal protuberance? 
How long do these affairs last? Must I 
go through one of those interminably 
patronizing receptions? Why must I tell 
the flutist his solo was divine when I 
still can't decide whether my wife waved

The Attic 

(A Description) 
by Hudson Rieva 

The mingled odors of stale cigarette 
smoke, wet towels, incense, cognac all 
these mixed with the overpowering smell 
of turpentine and paint were the first 
things one noticed as one entered the at- 
tic studio number 212 on the Avenue du 
Coq in the Montmartre de Paris. A light 
and airy attic studio, it was illuminated 
by several windows and a large skylight 
all of these were in an intense state of 
dirtiness. The light that managed to 
filter through the layers of soot and 
grime was pale, without energy, in fact 
altogether worn out from its long ardu- 
ous journey through the successive lay- 
ers of city dirt. Under this skylight in 
a limped pool of pale light sat a small 
stoop-shouldered young man garbed in 
a tattered artists smock working intent- 
ly on a large canvas at a still life draw- 
ing. Paint was spattered everywhere, 
on the smock, in the unkept long hair 
and face of the artist. A cigarette drool- 
ed from one corner of his mouth except 
when he would remove it to knock the 
ashes on the floor and also at those times 
to give vent to loud, hacking cough. 

"Quoi de neuf Vladimir? How is your 
painting today?" 

"Eh bien. Nothing new. No inspira- 
tion I guess. Zut! another spot. How 
were your classes today, Guy?" 

The latter was a tall, dark-haired 
student of literature at the Sorbonne. 
The roommate of the artist Vladimir and 
very much like him in manners and 
habits. A polka-dotted purple scarf 
around his neck, a green cape draped 
over his handsome shoulders and a green 
felt hat with a large wide brim and a 
feather stuck in the band at first seem- 
ed a little incongruous, but as one looked 
at the tall German, his thin, long face 
with the penetrating brown eyes set un- 
der eyebrows that reminded one of a 
hedge growing wild on a neglected es-

tate, a slightly aquiline nose above a 
rather sensual mouth made one recon- 
sider whether or not his attire was in- 
congruous at all. Most people finally 
came to the conclusion that his manner 
of dress just suited him. Guy tossed 
his hat and cape on one of the day couch- 
es and sat down on one portion of it 
which was not littered with books and 

"Ah, mon petit, classes were unusually 
dull. I wasn't feeling well anyway. J'ai

"You would have a hangover today 
after spending all your time in that bis-

you eat, drink and be merry, but tomor-

come enough of philosophy for today.

"Oh nothing much. Your native Rus- 
sia is having another 'slaughter of the

saying this he crossed over to one por-

of all the Russians hung upon the wall.

will you again be raised over our palace 
in St. Petrograd? Perhaps next month,

A fling of his palette into one dusty 
paintsmeared corner, his brushes in an- 
other direction and a foot pushed brutal- 
ly through his canvas completed the de- 
molishment of his work for the day. 

"Come Guillaume lets have a drink of 
vodka. That is we will if you can find 
any glasses that aren't dirty or broken." 

"Bonne sante, Vladimir," said Guy as 
they drank their vodka. "Now let us 
clean up this reeking place. Did it ever 
occur to you that we may have visitors?" 

"Zui alors! Who would come up here

The rooms in which this German lived 
with his fiery little Russian gave ample 
evidence of their characters. Green 
drapes hung dejectedly at the windows. 
Paints, papers, brushes, palettes, pic- 

tures and books were scattered all over 
the place. The two tables which were 
used as desks were piled high with 
papers and empty cognae and vodka 
bottles. Cigarettes stubs were everyplace 
on the floor. A bookcase in one corner 
of the room held English, French, Ger- 
man and Spanish novels. Not arranged 
as one might wish, but piled here and 
there with reckless abandon, while the 
bottom shelf held bottles, dirty glasses, 
a teapot, and a jar of caviar. From the 
ceiling which was cut in the middle to 
allow the use of the skylight, red hearts 
looked down on the disarray. They were 
put there merely because the two stud- 
ents were tired of looking at the bare 
ceiling and wanted something to break 
the monotony of the plain surface. Mono- 
tony! There was not one single thing; 
about this room that was monotonous. 
A map of England bounded by two 
Japanese prints looked across the room 
at a commercial map of America with 
pictures of great French liners at the 
upper right hand corner. 

By now all was peaceful, Guy was 
sucking calmly on his pipe engrossed in 
a dusty medieval tome on England. Vla- 
dimir was again at his easel recapturing 
some of the almost forgotten beauty of 
the landscape of his Holy Mother Rus- 
sia. All was still. Nothing was heard 
save the contented bubble of the savory 
samovar and the occasional cough of the

The Church 

(As seen by the Janitor) 
l>n Piergint 

Old Billings, laden with mop, bucket, 
and dust rag, entered the rear door of 
the church auditorium. It was a grey 
Monday morning in November and fee- 
ble were the rays of light that seeped 
through the stained interior windows 
and their heavy protection of storm 
glass. The Transfiguration seemed duil 
and lifeless from its window high in the 
chancel. Gone was the rich deep blue i f 
the sky and the sparkling white of the 
Saviour's robe, because the sun was gone 
too and they had no radiance of their

self, "They're plenty dirty, and it'll be 
some job to wash them too, using those 
big long ladders. . . . Wonder what hap-

think those windows would be put to-

Suddenly he became aware of the damp 
mustiness of the sanctuary. It seemed 
strange that just yesterday the air had 
stirred with the faint odor of perfume, 
the heavy smell of the chrysanthemums 
on their flower stands, and the penetrat- 
ing camphor of the choir gowns laid up 
all week in moth balls. Even now it seem- 
ed staler than the seven-day-old variety. 
Perfume, flowers, and camphor had lost 
identity in a depressing sort of heav ; - 
ness that seemed even to discourage 

But Billings wasn't particularly sen- 
sitive, and his glance soon travelled to 
the organ pipes arranged outside of 
their organ chambers in rows like golden 
pencils standing on their points. They 
were mute now, giving no indication of

"I'm nothing but a box of wood," the

jestic harmony that only a pipe organ 
can produce. The janitor idly counted 
the pipes, as he often did during ser- 
vices when the sermon got boring, "... 
seventeen, eighteen, nineteen. That's 
right." Not that he expected anything 
different; but he checked up just to make 
sure, counting them in pairs as they 
swept upward from each end. "The big 
fellow in the middle makes it nineteen, 
yep," the janitor continued, "I guess 
those dents in the large pipe are in for 
keeps. I knew they were in too much of 
a hurry to put them up. They're sort 
of dirty too . . . they could stand a dust- 
ing. Maybe I'll get around to it some- 

At that the pipes would be easier to 
handle than the walls. Here and there 
dark vertical stains showed where vva- 

ter had seeped through between the 
windows and the stone framework. Si- 
milar streaks betrayed the presence of 
raditators. Soiled hands had fumbled 
for the light switch, many times. Even 
the ceiling was dirty and streaky. "It'll 
have to be repainted sooner or later," 
the janitor reflected, "and what a pow- 
erful lot of scaffolding that's going lo 
take to get up there to the top of the 
arch ! It's seventy feet at least. . . . Won- 
der how much paint they'd use Plen- 
ty I suppose." Billings coughed and the 
sound echoed hollowly, and then the si- 
lence closed in. 

Stretching away in front of him the 
dark walnut pews rose in regular rank 
out of the dimness. They were strangely 
emtpy now, as if resting from the bui- 
den of upholding sinning humanity. He 
stared at the back of one pew and burst 
out in righteous indignation. "That's no 
way to treat fine furniture. When Wi'i 
these hare-brained mothers teach their 
kids to keep their feet where they be- 
long?" Leaning over he stroked the 
scarred surface, continuing to mutter as 
he did so about "kids not having any 
more sense of responsibility than they 
ever had." Then his eyes fell on the hym- 
nals which people had forgotten to re- 
place in the racks, the papers scattered 
on the floor, and the gloves left behind 
yesterday by people anxious to escape 
the comfort of the sanctuary . . . just 
more to be straightened and cleaned. 

Billings sighed and started to mop up 
the linoleum. 


There was a time when dead men 
Were brought from the front — 
Stacked in neat piles 
And carried in a cart with dignity, 
Now they leave them where they fall 
And run over them with tanks to make 
blood-red jelly!

The Church Sanctuary 

(as seen by the Minister) 
by Piergint 

The Rev. James Wilson from his pul- 
pit chair in the chancel surveyed his 
Sunday morning congregation. The 
black-robed choir had just begun the 
morning anthem, but it would be some 
time before they would finish. The se- 
lection was long and the singers weren't 
inclined to dispose of it summarily, not 
on this sunny June day. The minister 
was glad for the brief respite, for it 
gave him opportunity to review the 
message he wa^ about to deliver. 

Lifting his head he gazed with unsee- 
ing eyes out over the audience, recollect- 
ing his thoughts and praying for the 
strength and conviction he needed to 
implant his message as deeply in the 
hearts of his people as it was in his own. 
Suddenly his sight focused on the large 
stained window high in the rear of the 
sanctuary. The warm sun beaming 
through the delicately tinted glass seem- 
ed to transform the central figure of the 
Christ into a being radiant as the sun 
itself. The minister had never seen the 
window so beautiful. Its beauty seemed 
to envelop his innermost being. Gone in 
an instant were the thoughts of the 
message. Christ the Good Shepherd 
holding his bedraggled lost sheep in his 
arms crowded out all else. The rich 
azure of the heavens and the earth's de- 
licate green brought out vividly the glis- 
tening white robe of the Christ. Almost 
trembling the Rev. Wilson worshiped. 

His glance passed to the windows on 
his left, halting momentarily at each new 
shrine. He mused, "Behold, I stand at 

the door and knock And being in 

agony he prayed more earnestly: and 
his sweat was as it were great drops of 
blood .... Father, forgive them ; for they 

know not what they do And it came 

to pass, while he blessed them, he was 
parted from them and carried up into 
heaven. . . .He is not here, but is risen." 


Hold Your Tongue, Girlie! 

Cast not your curses on the males, 
Nor tell about them, horrible tales, 
For though your judgment's true about 
them — ■ 

Good Lord what would you do without 

— Rocelyn 


The wheels of my heart hurt as they go 

And there's a dull buzz in my brain, 
I hide whenever the sun comes 'round, 
I love to weep with the rain. 

— Rocelyn 

Each window seem more beautiful and 
inspiring than the last, with the sun- 
light playing here on the Savior's robe, 
and there on a little face upturned to 
that of the Master. 

Faintly as if from a great distance the 
minister heard the choir but only for a 
brief moment. His eye roamed about the 
whole sanctuary, noting the massive 
bronze chandeliers, the tall white co- 
lumns, and the dark walnut trim. It was 
a proper setting for those mighty win- 
dows. A smile lingered on his face just 
for a moment. It had been a hard task 
to convince that building committee that 
it was a sanctuary that wag needed, not 
an auditorium. They had wanted a wide 
room with semi-circular pews. The min- 
ister thought of the Old World cathe- 
drals as he looked upward to the long 
double-arched ceiling far above him. It 
was as if the architect had taught the 
inspiration of the Gothic masters and 
raised this modest modern cathedral to 
soar heavenward also. In his heart he 
was thankful that it had been so. 

The golden organ pipes pointed heaven- 
ward too, in long orderly rows. The Rev. 
Wilson became acutely conscious of the 
music as it welled forth in glorious har- 
money from the many-throated organ. 
The choir was muted for the time-being 

■and the organist was attempting to draw 
■the fullest and richest of tonal effects 
■from her instrument. The huge contra- 
fbass rumbled softly in tones so low pitch- 
| ed as to be nearly inaudible. He had 
seen those pipes as they were installed, 
square wooden monsters, the largest ones 
so long that they had to be bent over to 
fit in the organ chamber, in spite of the 
fact that room was thirty feet high. 
Now and then he heard the shrill whistle 
of the flute, and he remembered that the 
organist used that to represent the star 
in the East in that Christmas prelude 
about the march of the Magi. It came 
from a metal pipe scarcely as long as a 
lead pencil and no wider. Within these 
two extremes ranged the voices of the 
diapason, the oboe, the French horn, and 
the strange vox humana. The minister 
could not classify and catalogue all these 
tones as they came from the organ, but 
no matter. They carried him away in 
a flood of feeling, and he closed his eyes 
and allowed himself to be borne along. 
His heart leaped to meet the beauty as 
it was wafted down to him. How could 
there be anything better with which to 
sound the praises of the Almighty than 
this marvelous instrument? It was ether- 

The delicate scent of the roses in their 
baskets in front of him seemed almost 
heavenly too as the minister became 
aware of their presence. It had never 
ceased to be a miracle to him that such 
beautiful and fragrant flowers should 
arise from the dirty brown earth, bloom 
for a brief time, and then return whence 
they had come. It was the cycle of all 
life; but this morning the Rev. Wilson 
preferred to enjoy the perfume of the 
roses rather than philosophize about 

Someone moved in the front pew and 
the minister's attention came to rest 
upon his congregation. The choir hum- 
med melodiously in the distance but did 
not obtrude too much upon his conscious- 
ness. Lovingly he surveyed his people 
as a shepherd scans his flock, assuring 

Lines Written From Under 
A Rain Spot 

He stared at her eyes — clear and blu j , 
He casually appraised her white teeth 

Carriage so stately — legs oh so shapely. 
Then slapping her back said, "She'll do; 
I'll take this one, and the donkey too.

himself that all was well. They were his 
flock and he as their leader was respon- 
sible for their spiritual well-being. There 
was Mr. Holmes who he knew before he 
locked would be fast asleep; but he also 
knew that the man worked hard ond 
long to provide for his large family. He 
was a real Christian, even if he couldn't 
stay awake in church. In the rear old 
Twigsby could be seen bustling in and 
out, trying hard to be quiet and not 
succeeding. To the minister most of the 
fuss was unnecessary, but he couldn't 
spoil Twigsby's fun. After all, he did 
do his work and the church was always 
clean and sparkling. He didn't have to 
worry about showing visitors about. 
Twigsby took care of that worry. 

Mrs. Wetherill was in her usual place, 
about halfway back on the right side, 
she who had been a widow for almost 
two weeks now. Her anguish had been 
almost unbearable and the heart was not 
less sore by this time; but she bravely 
came to church trying hard not to whim- 
per or sob. The minister prayed for 
strength to help her if he could. There 
were others to comfort too, the mother 
whose only son had been arrested last 
week for petty thievery, the business 
man who had lost everything he had in 
a business failure. He could multiply 
cases of people dependent upon him for 
spiritual guidance, for a way out of the 
troubles besetting them. He MUST com- 
fort them, guide them. 

Suddenly he became aware that the 
choir had just sung Amen. The Rev. 
James Wilson arose to speak. 


They've all gone tp bed now — those 
people who won't listen to me, who won't 
hear what I have to say. They know all 
about me; this is just the right thing for 
me, and that is exactly what I ought to 
do. Now, of course, I may seem queer 
to other people, but they understand me 
and they think I'm all right. Yes, they 
understand me, they think I'm all right. 
And here I sit alone with no one to tell 
what I feel. I can't tell them; they won't 
take time to listen and if they did they 
would tell me I am silly and queer. And 
they think they know me. 

She seems to understand sometimes, 
at least she stops her work until I finish 
speaking and she smiles at me, but then 
she goes on and thinks no more about it. 

Why isn't there someone here even a 
little like me? I'm so alone with all these 
lovely, ordinary people. I don't hate 
them for it. I can see it is not their 
fault. It's horrible to be alone. These 
thoughts within me, all my own and 
only mine — I can't change them and I 
don't want to. I must, I must have some- 
one to talk to, someone who understands 
and sympathizes. There is no one here, 
but some day there may be. Now I'm 
alone, but I'll wait and hope to meet 
that someone some day, somewhere. 

Did that clock strike two? It's time I 
go to bed with the rest of them. Good- 
night, lonely thoughts.

West Hallers Weekend at Mt. Gretna 

by Martha Davies 
Under rainy skies sixteen West 
Hall girls piled, pushed and shoved 
huge bundles of food and bedding 
into cars that seemed too small and 
strangely wouldn't expand. Under 
dripping trees by the use of various 
contrivances they fell from the groan- 
ing conveyances of the cozy inside of 
their Gretna annex. With rain pat- 
tering on the roof they spent the 
weekend with hilarity that didn't re- 
semble their environment. With rainy 
clouds overhead they returned with 
extra pounds accumulated by inter- 
mittent eating, sleeping, and laugh- 
ing, and, oh yes, walks to build up 
new appetites. 

First arrivals at Gretna found use 
for their girl scout training in 
setting up camp. After a fire was 
built the k. p. went on duty so that 
very soon tempting odors came forth 
setting a precedent for all the other 
meals. Once their duties were finish- 
id, informal entertainment of every- 
thing from a scarecrow dance to the 
writing of a play, in part, in which 
the actors swept into the room, he 
moved an inch, she moved two feet, 

she turned a little pale as he fell 
hard, and finally the plans were to be 
ended by tying the knot. 

After the chauffress had combatted 
fog and storm to bring the late ar- 
rivals from Annville, tea and cake 
served before the fireplace warmed 
them for the tussle for blankets and 
the journey into the upper regions of 
the cottage. Lulled by the patter of 
rain on the roof tired heads were not 
raised from the cots until clanking of 
pots and pans and the smell of bacon 
pried the girls from bed. 

Donning water-proof clothing some 
of the more venturesome left the rest 
to keep the home fires burning while 
they explored the surroundings. They 
plodded through puddles and mud but 
found their way up the collapsing 
steps of the Conewago hotel to be 
disappointed only by not finding a 
corpse in the eerie setting. Only the 
sad remains of the fixtures thick with 
dust did they find when the caretaker 
left a few persistent ones in on the 
first floor. On the return trip made 
through round-about paths the only 
outstanding object was one little nut-

pax vobiscum 

Rather surprising may be the an- 
nouncement from below the masthead 
that the new regime wishes to shout 
no accusations against the personnel 
of the college's Publicity Department, 
at least not yet. No ulterior motive 
but the conviction that the mainte- 
nance of a spirit of cooperation, which 
seems to obtain at the present time, 
could mean the entrance into a period 
of near-millenial editorial bliss 
prompts this probably needless asser- 

Naturally this is not to be interpret- 
ed or construed as indicating that any 
possible windfalls will be helped along 
toward the offices of the Lebanon dail- 
ies, for it is applicable alone to those 
more or less frequent campus occur- 
rences of news value which appear to 
be functions of the season. Every 
year there are several events in the 
coverage of which a mutual under- 
standing would seem to be of decided 
benefit to all concerned. 

So, unless some distant midnight 
should be made bitter by the feel of 
the knife applied to the back, there is 
here murmured a soft "pax vobiscum." 


the lib 


Yes, in the library, there is a small, 
locked box known as the Contributors' 
Box which is so designated in letters 
of gilt on one or more of its sides. Its 
chief use has become that of provid- 
ing a temporary repository for com- 
pleted articles which had been assign- 
ed to staff members. It has, however, 
another purpose, one not very much in 
evidence, which is that of providing a 
direct means of contact between ihe 
paper and its campus readers. 

Quite plainly the shaping of LA 
VIE into the type of paper which will 
most nearly fulfill the expectations ot 
the majority of the student body can 
best be regulated by the submission 
of criticisms and opinions, whether 
they be favorable or otherwise. 

Welcome as unexpected and pleas- 
ant surprises at any time are contri- 
butions intended for publication, 
whether they be open letters or speci- 
mens of literary skill. The finding, 
for example, in the little box of a 
poem or prose piece on a par with the 
better works printed in last week's ex- 
cellent Green Blotter Supplement 
would without doubt occasion great re- 

It must be remembered, however, 
that contributions are not to be made 
anonymously especially in the event of 
arbitrary items. Complete reliance 
can be placed in the promise here re- 
affirmed that names wirl be kept in 
strict confidence if such non-divul- 
gence is deemed a necessity.

re censorship 

The following quotations were se- 
cured as a result of a survey con- 
ducted this week by "LA VIE" to de- 
termine student opinion on faculty 
censorship of student publications. 

Carl Sherk — Strict supervision by 
the faculty is out of the question for 
it reflects upon the common-sense of 
the staff and its ability to differenti- 
ate between right and wrong. 

Chris Walk — Faculty supervision is 
all right if not carried to extremes. 
Student's opinions should be printed 
if not radical or detrimental to the 

John Rex — All questionable articles 
should be approved by a few faculty 
members selected for the purpose. 

Harold Maurer — I believe that the 
editor and his associates should take 
care of this matter. The student body 
itself would disapprove of anything 
undesirable in student publications. 

Dean Aungst — We are old enough 
to know what is proper and fit to 
print I hope. 

Betty Anne Rutherford — If we are 
going to have a student publication, 
it should be run by the students. But 
perhaps in cases where the staff over- 
steps its bounds it would be a good 
idea to have a check in reserve to be 
used infrequently. 

Lillian Leisey — I believe that cen- 
sorship by the faculty is unnecessary

day studentettes 

By Wanda Ride 
These warm spring days when 
everyone counts the days, just prove 
how discontent with his lot everyone 
is. The seniors count dolefully, ending 

with, "Just more weeks until 

we'll be out in the cruel, cold world." 
The freshmen count joyfully, polish 
off their computations with, "Just... 
more weeks of school. I can hardly 
wait 'til it's over." Quote: senior 
Anna Evans and freshman Ruth Gru- 

After a successful dance last Fri- 
day evening the D. S. R. was com- 
paratively calm until Peggy Boltz 
blew in to give her version of the 
whole affair. With all due respect to 
her glib tongue and skilful imitations, 
we're wondering how Peg would feel, 
were she the object of discussion. 

Talk about your ladies of liesure! 
All Monday afternoon, one person 
after another would inquire as to the 
whereabouts of one Louise Bowman. 
Her disappearance bordered on being 
a mystery until she dashed in for 
May Day rehearsal, calmly explain- 
ing that she had just gone to see a 
movie. And all the rest of us stew- 
ing in classes ! 

In this modern age, women seem to 
copy men's ideas more and more. In- 
stead of retaining the old method of 
everyone for herself, the senior gals 
have taken to sending the freshmen 
on errands. "What's the idea?" ask 
the victims of the plan, to which 
Touchie replies, "The fellows do it. 
Why shouldn't we?" 

Gracie Smith, with undying de- 
votion to her companion Mary Mehaf- 
fey, was so wrapped up in softening 
the orange in Mary's lunch to an 
edible stage, that she found herself 
cleaning up the garbage produced 
when the orange burst under too 
much pressure. From the looks of 
things, that was a little too much 
pressure for Mary to endure. 

It seems that spring fever replaced 
the housecleaning instincts among the 
dwellers in the D. S. R. Consequent- 
ly, one wall of our domain is a soft 
shade of beige, while the other three 
walls are a dirty shade of grime. If 
you crave contrast, come around! 

on the stage 

By Backdrop 

After this week's heavy practice 
schedule Arms and the Man begins 
to show real improvement. Harold 
Maurer, who has one of the leading 
roles, has missed several important 
practices due to illness, but is now 
fitting easily into his part. At this 
point the most conspicuous problem 
is stepping up the extended dialogue 
between Raina and her dashing he- 
roes, for as long as it remains below 
the proper tempo the whole play tends 
to drag. This difficulty will be decided- 
ly alleviated with practice and the ad- 
dition of the required atmosphere and 
sound effects. 

Perhaps most of the L. V. theatre 
audience is more familiar with the 
plot in its musical comedy form, The 
Chocolate Soldier by Victor Herbert. 
Arms and the Man is usually rated 
as the fifth of Shaw's great plays. 
It was written at the close of the 
nineteenth century and served as the 
basis for Herbert's operetta of the 
next decade. The play captures the 
delightful atmosphere of Viennese 
society coupled with the pretensions 
of the nouveau riche of the capital. 
The swashbuckling uniforms of the 
officers add color and flavor to the 
setting. While on the difficult subject 
of costumes, it seems that the girls 
of the cast are having quite a scram- 
ble hunting gowns of the period as 
only the men's clothes are being sup- 
plied. There is much rooting through 
attics and trunks for old laces and 

The play in its original form calls 
for a particularly effective garden 
scene which the stage crew has found 
necessary to omit due to difficulties of 
construction and handling. It will be 
interesting to note how the director 
circumnavigates the complications 
which this change involves. 

Did you know that Mary Klopp and 
Kay Jay are rival for first place in 
the affections of a certain Annville 
lad? Tch-tch, its so sad to see how 
these masterful males can disrupt 
such beautiful friendships and kill the 
lovely relationships that were so well 
secured 'way back last Septem- 
ber din ing freshman week ! 

And now before 1 get too audacious, 
maybe I'd better pull out of Gossip-

ow that snow will do away with those 
festivities. If the weather (good

the team wins, good for them; if they 
lose, the weather was to blame.

tennis, has attracted the fancy of 
some seventeen aspiring youths. If 
quality can be measured by quantity, 
he should have a good team. But 
there again the weather has thwarted 
his plans. Practices could not be held, 
and two matches had to be postponed, 
because of the obstinacy of old Jupe

Lose To F&M 7-2 

Lebanon Valley's inexperienced 
netmen were downed by a rather top- 
heavy score when they travelled to 
Lanccster yesterday afternoon to 
play 'heir first match of the season 
with the practiced Franklin and Mar- 
shall tennis team. Although kept 
from practice and previously schedul- 
ed contests by rainy weather and the 
tragic condition of the courts, the 
Blue and White squad did, however, 
put up a much better fight than the 
final tallies show. 

The L. V. netsters were slow to 
start and lost all six of the singles 
matches. However, by the time the 
doubles got under way, the local boys 
felt more sure of themselves and did 
win two out of the three matches.

Lebanon Valley— 3-0, 6-1.

Senate Banquet May 7 

At the meeting of the Men's Sen-

hold their annual banquet Tuesday, 
May 7. Moyer's Restaurant in Leba- 
non was unanimously chosen as the 
place for the dinner. 

It is expec'.ed that nominations for

Immediately before the luncheon 
August Herman and Robert Rapp at-

Meet Your Fellow Students There 




By Digitus 

This edition being Editor "Beetles" 
debut, it is only courtesy on our part 
to wish him journalistic success "a

( ?) Digitus to continue his analytical 
observations of the private lives of 
the cave dwellers. Hence until "death 
do us part," I shall continue in my 
evil ways. 

There are times in life when we 
say the wrong things at the wrong 
time. Franklin Patschke walked beau- 
tifully into one of those embarrassing 
traps when he expressed his opinion 
concerning a chapel speaker who was 
three feet ahead of him. Frank con- 
templated that "what the speaker said 
was all right, but he was too long- 
winded." Gulp, good morning, Rever- 

Leon Batdorl'i', tired from a heavy 
day of study (or should I say night) 
sought to rest his weary bones as he 
stretched his body across three chairs. 
It so happens that this fatigued frosh 
fell fast asleep in the quiet of the 
"conserve" students' "lounge room"; 
but in turning over, he was jarred 
from dream-land by rolling to the 
floor with a bang. Those present in 
the room saw cause for laughter, but 
not our friend Leon who clenched his 
fists and threatened to beat up the 
fellow who pushed him off the chairs. 
Oh! Leon, how could you rash judge? 

At the beginning of the week Bill 
McKnight appeared upon the campus 
wearing a pair of conspicuous dark 
glasses. Although Bill was kidded 
about them, he found that they were 
handy; since they were too dark to 
read German script, but not too dark 
to read his cards, as well as those of 
his opponents, in his daily round of 

On a week-end trip to Baltimore, 
John Lynch stopped off at Hood Col- 
lege in Frederick, Maryland, to pay 
Ralph Lloyd's extra special girl friend 
a little visit. Knowing John as well 
as we do, we believe that he was de- 
livering a message for his friend 
Ralph. Did the blue-eyed co-ed know 
WARE her Johnny was that EVE ? 

O! where has that handsome brute 
Bill Bender been keeping himself? His 
promenades upon the campus are not 
so frequent as they were of yore. 
Could it be that our King Arthur is 
home practising a new May Day step 
in his wine cellar, or has he taken 
those recent canine signs posted on the 
campus literally?

hatch that dared the weather to give 
bird-lovers a thrill. 

Saturday was completed by more 
smaller hikes, songs, and food. High- 
point of the day was the Turco-styled 
Italian spaghetti served by an ex- 
perienced hand and highly acclaimed 
by the connoisseurs. With so much 
food consumed it was amazing the 
breath that was left for singing, for 
the rafters shook for hours as camp 
songs, rounds, and other ditties en- 
livened the party. Not only songs 
were heard but also shouts of "It's 
your turn," "You touched," "What 
does little casino count?" broke into 
the rhythm at times. 

Although resolves for early rising 
on Sunday morning were vehement 
the night before, it was late until all 
wefe ready for the informal little 
Sunday service. Favorite hymns were 
sung and after devotions open dis- 
cussion begun by two of the girls 
gave rise to an interesting discussion 
concerning real happiness. 

Since the girls wanted a final 
glimpse of Gretna, the more animated 
ones divided themselves into two 

Y's Lead Sino-Japanese 
Student Day Of Prayer 

College young people throughout 
the United States joined the Sino- 
Japanese students in observance of 
the Sino-Japanese student Day of 
Prayer. The Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. 
C. A. cooperated in the movement by 
presenting a service in the college 
church last Sunday evening. The pro- 
gram took the form of a Service of 
Prayer and Dedication for Peace. 

Anna Mae Bomberger presided over 
the service, and was assisted by Carl 
Ehrhart. Jane Ehrhart presented a 
short talk on the subject "Why Youth 
Does Not Want War," and Paul Horn 
spoke on "The World Christian Stu 
dent Federation in a World at War." 
The evening's offering was set aside 
for the benefit of college students in 
countries at war. 

The movement was under the gen- 
eral sponsorship of the National Com- 
mission on University Work. 

Philo-Delphian Dance 

Philo and Delphian Literary So- 
cieties have pooled their efforts and 
resources to hold an open informal 
dance in Philo Hall on Friday, April 
26, from 8 to 12. Besides dancing to 
the smooth and varied rhythms of 
music furnished by a nickelodian, the 
dancers will be refreshed at inter- 
mission by some tasty delectables 
served by Irene Seiders, Pauline 
Smee, Dorothea Krall and Viola Snell. 
The hall will be decorated for the oc- 
casion and Philo's new curtains will 
be initiated into use. The chaperones 
will be Dr. and Mrs. A. H. Black. 

Philo has placed Donald Glen in 
charge of arrangements with Richard 
Owen, Fred Munsel, and Richard 
Beckner to help him.

Invitations have been extended to 
those members of L. V. who have en- 
rolled in this course to take part in 
this scholarship contest. 

Closer to home is the fact that two 
cf the hopeful aviators, Dave Lenker 
and August Herman, have taken the 
physical examinations to enter the 
Naval Reserve Corps. If the exami- 
nations are successfully passed they 
will report after the end of school to 
take the tests in flying. If these are 
satisfactory they will report to the 
i aval training base at Pensacola, 
Florida, for a seven weeks' training 
course, at the end of which they will 
be given the commission of ensign in 
the Naval Reserve Corps. Jack Mol- 
ler expects to go to the Brooklyn Navy 
"iards this week end to take the test. 

groups. One of these went as the ad- 
vance guard to lay a path for the 
rest to follow. Although the markers 
weren't always clear even old fami- 
liars of the park were led through 
paths they never knew existed. The 
divided party with the trail-blazers 
not much in advance of the others got 
back just as appetites fostered by the 
Gretna air were again ravenous. It 
was fortunate, too, that they did eat

breaking camp proved a real job. 

As proof that the weekend party 
was a success the girls thought that 
Annville looked much more water- 
soaked than Gretna and that campus 
was a most still and silent place when 
they pried themselves from groaning 
cars in front of the dorm.

Johnny McGee At 
Junior Prom May 10 

Wizard Of The Trumpet 
Jo Provide Sweet Swing 

The gist of Doctor Lynch's remarks 
chapel on Monday was that this 
a ° sC hool that is going places. To 
Ite our president, "The star of 
Lebanon Valley is in the ascendancy." 
it is particularly fitting that this 
.' s Junior Prom to be held in the 
Hershey Ballroom next Friday, May 
l0 w }ii feature a band whose star is 
also a rising one. The Junior Class 
made a decided break with school cus- 
tom in daring to sign a big name 
band, but the record of Johnny Mc- 
Gee is such that would more than 
justify this step. 

Not only should McGee be of inter- 
est to devotees of popular music, but 
to lovers and students of classical 
music as well. His family was a fami- 
ly of musicians and at ten years of age 
johnny was a child prodigy playing 
the drums in the Philadelphia Sym- 
phony Orchestra. He studied under 
Joseph Schlinger, who insists on ap- 
proaching- music as a mathematiacl 
science rather than as an art, which 
probably accounts for Johnny's per- 
fection in playing and his lack of 
"artistic temperament." 

McGee is a bom trumpet player 
and had great success in swing cir- 
cles, playing with Benny Goodman, 
Will Osborne, Russ Morgan, Jan Sa- 
vitt, and Glenn Miller.. All the while, 
however, Johnny was torn between a 
desire to play a sweet cornet and the 
acclaim of people who wanted him to 
continue with his hot swing trumpet. 

It was only a short while ago that 
he stepped from the ranks of profes- 
sional radio trumpeting to organize 
his own band, but his rise has been 
sensational. The band's forte is what 
Mnny himself terms "A sweet 
d anceable rythmic style" just the type 
dance music that the average Val- 
eyite wants. He drew record crowds

73d Anniversary 
Of Philo Today 

Week End Of Activities 
Marks Gala Celebration 

The celebration of the seventy-third 
anniversary of the Philokosmian Lit- 
erary Society, oldest campus social 
organization, will begin this evening 
with the presentation of George Ber- 
nard Shaw's Arms and the Man at 
eight o'clock in Engle Hall in conjunc- 
tion with the Clionian Literary Soci- 

Before and after the play and be- 
tween the various acts novel and en- 
joyable entertainment will be provid- 
ed by a four-piece ensemble which 
will play the popular songs from The 
Chocolate Soldier, Victor Herbert's 
musical comedy version of the play. 

Philo Anniversary President Danny 
Seiverling stated that the formal din- 
ner dance, being held tomorrow night 
at Galen Hall, Wernersville, Penna., 
will be attended by approximately 
ninety-five couples. Of this number, 
which is the largest in the society s 
history, there are about a score of 
alumni members who are returning 
for the occasion. Carl Ehrhart, Chair- 
man of the Alumni Committee, is re- 
sponsible for the successful contacting 
of such a large number of alumni. 

Music for the evening, as announced 
previously, will again be furnished by 
the ten piece orchestra of Dick Moul 
which was engaged for last year's 
dance held at the Hotel Yorktowne in 

This year the society has voted to 
eliminate completely the giving of 
corsages for the sake of uniformity, 
since previously some members gave 
corsages while others did not. 

Students Attracted 
By Scholarships 

This week end Lebanon Valley Co^ 
lege will entertain about one hundred 
prospective students from far and 
near who will arrive on campus to 
take the student competitive examina- 
tions. Examinations will be held m 
the College Chapel starting at eight 
o'clock Saturday morning and contin- 
uing until noon. Each contestant will 
be given standardized objective tests 
in English and American Histor>. 
Students seeking music awards must 
arrange a schedule of private amo- 
tions at the music office at one o'clock 
Friday, May 3. Final auditions will 
be held Saturday, May 4. 

All high school seniors are eligib'e 
for tuition scholarship awards who 
are in the upper third of their respec- 
tive classes. 

One full - tuition scholarship, 
amounting to $1,100.00, or $275.00 
per year, will be awarded the student 
receiving the highest rating. This

Th erne Originator 


. . Junior Conservatory student whose 
theme and plan have been selected for 
May Day. 

Audrey Jane Immler 
May Day Chairman 

Audrey Jane Immler, a conserva- 
tory junior deserves much credit for 
the originality of the theme for this 
year's May Day. "Her theme, King 
Arthur and his Noble Knights of the 
Round Table, was chosen from all the 
themes submitted by the junior con- 
servatory students because it was con- 
sidered the most appropriate and the 
one which could best be adopted for 
use. Miss Immler has been very ac- 
tive in the Conservatory, holding 
membership in the Girls' Band and 
the Chorus. According to custom the 
junior members of the conservatory 
have planned the dances, selected the 
music, and directed the rehearsals. 
Under Miss Immler's capable chair- 
manship they have done a very good 
job in making this one of the best 
May Days. 

Last Chapel Period 
Senior Recognition Day 

Recognition for participation in ex- 
tracurricular activities will be given 
the Seniors at the last chapel service 
Thursday, May 23, replacing a custom 
previously observed at commencement 

Certificates of recognition will be 
oiven later to all who have engaged 
in extracurricular activities, while 
those who have proved outstanding: 
will receive special merit awards on 
the recommendation of the faculty ad- 
viser of that activity in either case. 

Dean Stonecipher, in charge of the 
ceremony, has not arranged a definite 
program as yet, but says that it will 
include at least a reading of the 
names of those awarded, along with 
mention of the activities for which the 
awards are being given. 

Attention Seniors I 

All orders for commencement in- 
vitations and programs must be 
given to one of the following com- 
mittee members immediately: Ce- 
cil Hemperly, Robert Dinsmore, 
Lillian Leisey. 

Yearbook Heads 
Sign Contracts 

Faculty Committee Approves 
Important Film Selections 

Robert Guinivan and Robert Die- 
sel, editor-in-chief and business man- 
ager respectively of the 1942 Quitta- 
pahilla, student annual publication, 
stated in an interview late Thursday 
that contracts for the all-important 
photography and engraving work of 
the yearbook had been signed by them 
and subsequently approved by the fac- 
ulty committee in charge of that par- 
ticular publication. 

Contract for the book's photogra- 
phy was awarded to Zamsky Studios 
of Philadelphia which has been tne 
official photographer for the past sev- 
eral years. 

The engraving contract, bid for by 
many concerns, was let to the Jahn 
& Oilier Engraving Company of Chi- 
cago. This firm has done no recent 
Lebanon Valley yearbook plates, but 
did have the contract quite a number 
of years ago. It is expected by the 
editor and business manager that Mr. 
Barton, the Jahn & Oilier representa- 
tive for this particular area, will be 
of considerable assistance in layout 
and idea work in the preparation of 
a usable dummy. 

No contract was nw mfetl for Liu- 
printing and binding of the book. The 
feeling was expressed, however, thac 
the printing would again be done by 
the J. Horace McFarland Company of 
Harrisburg which has printed the ma- 
jority of annuals coming from Ann-

Thomas E. Dewey and Cordell Hull 
were the candidates acclaimed for 
presidential nomination in the stud- 
ent opinion poll taken during Tuesday 
morning's chapel period under the 
direction of the International Rela-

other questions of the poll was the 
fact that only twenty-two persons 
were in favor of U. S. intervention in 
the war.

May Day Pageant 
King Arthurs Court 

Saturday Many Visitors 
To View Colorful Scene 

Lebanon Valley's traditional May 
Day Pageant will start tomorrow 
afternoon at 2:30 o'clock if Old Sol 
is willing. King Arthur and his Noble 
Knights of the Round Table is this 
year's theme. The May Queen, Louise 
Saylor, and her court comprised of 
Carmella Galloppi, maid of honor, 
Lillian Leisey, Barbara Bowman, 
Jean Schock, Bernice Witmer, Rachel 
Holdcraft, and Kathryn Zwally are 
guests at the court of King Arthur, 
William Bender. For their entertain- 
ment the various members of the 
court give dances. 

This period is one rich in color, and 
this color is reflected in the elaborate 
costumes of gold brocade, heavy silk, 
and velvets of many hues which have 
been obtained for the occasion. In- 
stead of the traditional May Pole 
Dance this year there will be a Fare- 
well pance by ladies of the court to 
Arthur's knights who are going away 
— they wind the May Pole in their 
honor. The knights are members of 
the junior class who were chosen by 
their classmates, the ladies of the 
courts are all junior girls. All the 
dances are gay and unique in char- 
acter with tricky little steps set to 
appropriate music. 

The pageant opens with the pro- 
cession of the May Queen and her 
court, the king, the presidents of the 
four classes and the knights and 
ladies of Arthur's Court. King Arthur 
then crowns the Queen, after which 
presents are presented to her by the 
various class presidents. The legend 
of King Arthur pulling his sword 
from the rack is then enacted for the 
Queen. Then the members of the 
court — housekeepers, chefs, personal 
maids, knights, lovers, joined by the 
peasants, all present dances for the 
Queen. The rollicking antics of the 
jesters provoke much good humor. The 
Farewell Dance is the last number 
of the pageant. The Queen is then 
carried off and her court follows. 

Annual Girls' Band 
Concert On May 8 

The Girls' Band of Lebanon Valley 
College will present its annual con- 
cert in Engle Hall on Wednesday, 
May 8, at 8 P. M. The splendid con- 
cert given by this organization last 
year is still remembered. 

The guest soloists for the GirL 
Band Concert are: Carol Malsh, v ; o 
linist from Harrisburg; Joseph Leo, 
clarinetist from Harrisburg; Eleanor 
Leo, saxophonist from Harrisburg ; 
Cassel Grub, cellist from Palmyra; 
and Miriam Carper, pianist from Pal 

All these artists were first place 
winners in the state contest held at 
Harrisburg last week. 

Miss Malsh and Mr. Leo were state 
and national contest winners last year 

Miss Malsh, Mr. Leo and Miss Leo 
will all go to the national contest 'm

Get out your magnifying glasses, 
sub-freshmen, and go over us careful- 
ly. We've dressed the campus festive- 
ly; our rooms are open to your inspec- 
tion; you are to be entertained by 
dramatics, music, and dancing. We, 
the under-graduates, are putting out 
our hands to you to show you the 
genuine Lebanon Valley. And why 
all this trouble? Because we want to 
meet you, like you, and display the L. 
V. C. of which we are proud. We want 
to find prospective men and women 
who could most closely replace the 
graduating ones, who show promise 
of being loyal Lebanon Valleyites. We 
are bent on selling ourselves to the 
really desirable customers. 

Welcome, a huge welcome from all 
of us to all of you. We hope both you 
and we scoi'e very high in the ex- 
aminations. Success to the class of 

we re proud 

Those cf us who are gifted with but 
meagre talent along musical lines are 
quite proud, however, of the fact that 
we are part of a college where there 
is such talent in abundance and where 
there are such excellent facilities for 
developing that talent to its fullest. 

Throughout the year the music or- 
ganizations, under the tireless and 
energetic directorship of capable Pro- 
fessor Edward P. Rutledge, have 
served the college faithfully. Worthy 
of utmost commendation and highest 
praise have been the entertainments 
provided on campus so far this year 
by the various groups. And there is 
no means of even estimating the boost 
given to the stock of Lebanon Valley 
College by the impressions made by 
these organizations whenever they 
perform elsewhere as ambassadors of 
good will from Annville. 

Perhaps the greatest triumph yet 
in so far as the elevation of the col- 
lege in the eyes of the general public 
is concerned was the splendid concert 
last Sunday in the Forum of the State 
Education Building at Harrisburg, a 
joint concert participated in by the 
Concert Band and the Glee Club un- 
der the auspices of the Greater Har- 
risburg Ministerium of the Church of 
the United Brethren in Christ. We 
felt especially proud last Sunday. 

Still to be presented this spring are 
two musical programs that are pro- 
bably checked off already as "musts" 
on^every calendar. They are the Girls' 
Band Concert of next Wednesday, 
May 8, and the Symphony Orchestra 
Concert of Thursday, May 16. There 
will be full return in each case on the 
money spent for admission. Let's plan 
to attend these concerts and show our 
conservatory artists just how proud 
we are of them.

day studentettes 

By Wanda Ride 
Ho-hum — I guess I've got to wake 
up for my weekly period to grind out 
some gab about the gals. It'd be 
heartbreaking not to enrage at least 
one lass this glorious week of spring 
— and no mistake this time! Just ask 
Adele Black if spring is here, or 
wasn't it spring that had Adele down 
on Monday morning ? ! 

That just reminds me that Bunny 
Witmer wasn't ambition personified, 
either, on Monday. Paxtang doesn't 
seem as if it would present much ex- 
citement, so we deduct from that the 
fact that both Bunny and Adele have 
something up their sleeves, besides 
the traditional arm. 

But Toots Leisey is the exceptional 
gal that proves the rule. She popped 
in on Monday telling — in detail, mind 
you — about all the work she did. Lil- 
lian accounted for quite a number of 
hours, but she can't kid us into think- 
ing that Stanley didn't figure some- 
where in that sludy-bound record. 

Last week, Louise Bowman was de- 
bating with herself as to whether she 
should answer the call of Duty or that 
of Pleasure on Monday evening. Evi- 
dently Duty was vanquished, for she 
gave a dramatic fall-by-fall account of 
the roller-skating party she had at- 
tended. Really, Weezie, nobody can 
understand how you are so nonchal- 
ant about letting Duty go to smash. 

All those groans and growls from 
the inhabitants of the D. S. R. about 
the inconvenience of May Day prac- 
tices changed to smiles and smirks 
when it was announced that there 
would be no classes because of the 
once offensive duty. Honestly, you'd 
think that it's a crowd of ten-year- 
olds being compelled to go to classes. 

Marian Kreider was alternately sick 
at heart and angry when she couldn't 
find her notebook. It was a mystery 
as to why she should be so much con- 
cerned over such a trifle, until she 
falteringly confessed that there was a 
letter in it. You'd better be cautious, 
Marian, or the other half of that 
double life you lead, will be glaringly 

Liz Kerr's ordinarily gay counte- 
nance was slightly dulled this week;

on letters to keep up her buoyancy of

the chapel question 

By Paul W. Stouffer 

It has been rumored about the cam- 
pus that there may be a drastic 
change in the manner of chapel next 
year. If this rumor is based on fact 
we sincerely hope that it will become 
actuality . In brief, the rumor is that 
there will be no daily chapel period 
next year, chapel will be held for 45 
minutes once a week in the College 
Church, and the service will be more 
formalized and devotional than the 
present service. Moieover, there will 
be more good outside speakers. This 
is the main idea and it seems to be a 
very workable and excellent program. 

The way chapel is conducted now 
there is very little real worship. It is 
more like an assembly for some secu- 
lar purpose than for a service of 
prayer and devotion to our God. We 
go to chapel, sing a hymn or two, and 
then fall asleep, read, or become bored 
to death and never pay a bit of at- 
tention to the real purpose of chapel. 
The main reason for this is that in 
the present surroundings it is very 
hard to put ourselves in a devotional 
frame of mind. And when we do 
achieve that frame of mind, we often 
find that the speaker is ve^y disap- 
pointing. There should be some place 
that holds the atmosphere of a church 
to have our devotional services. When 
one has to endure the surroundings, 
atmosphere, service, and speakers that 
we have to endure, it is no wonder 
that there is very little interest in 
chapel by our student body as a whole. 

If we could have a chapel period 
once a week and in the College 
Church there most certainly would be 
more interest and devotional attitude 
on the part of the student body. In 
the College Church we would be in an 
inspirational atmosphere. And with 
the more ritualized service that has 
been suggested, it would be so much 
easier to really worship and approach 
our God than it is in the present 
chapel. Chapel in this case would be 
much better attended than it is now. 
Then, too — what is most important — 
the students would derive much more 
benefit from such a service than they 
can now. 

The opinions of the students on this 
idea would be greatly appreciated and

In offering criticism which may

statements seem justifiable a t uT 
point. First of all the cast as a who!* 
needs to speak more distinctly * 
with more volume to avoid having^ 1 
speeches sound like mere mumblia 
at times. Then, too, the dialogue 2

been spontaneously added shows the 
ease and sureness which the cast b 

The play begins quite dramatically 
and progresses nicely in a series of 
deceits, intrigues, and humorous dis- 
coveries. Increasing the interest 
which the play has already aroused 
are the amusing and interesting 
gleanings secured by attending sever- 
al rehearsals: — the "agitating" fan 
of Catherine by which she can give 
excellent expression to her feelings; 
Nicola's subsitution of a plain market 
basket for a suitcase; the rather pre- 
carious steps which Raina uses so 
often and so gracefully; the notes 
which Major Sergius and Captak 
Bluntschli exchange at the beginning 
of the third act and the chuckles they 
produced from Major- Petkoff upon 
reading them (what could have been 
written upon them??) ; the charming 
Louka's tendency to lisp; the numer- 
ous odd slips in lines as the embar- 
rassing misplacement of man for 
woman in certain significant speeches. 
These are only a few of those usual 
amusing incidents which accompany 
every rehearsal. 

Behind the scenes things have been 
happening, too — some that we do no 
know about, others which have reac 
ed us through inquiries here a 
there. First, there is the night bro- 
thers Bender and Lloyd took 
sion of Martha Jane and Peggy

Open Dance In Gym 
After Philo-Clio Play 

Scene of activities for the week 
end will shift tonight following the 
presentation of the Philo-Clio play in 
Engle Hall to the Alumni Gymnasium, 
which will be open until midnight for 
all those who desire to dance. Music 
will be furnished by the outstanding 
bands of the country, thanks, to Mau- 
rice Erdman's record collection. Visit- 
ors to the campus are asked to "make 
themselves at home" and to attend 
the informal gathering in the gym. 

Johnny McGee At 
Junior Prom May 10 

(Continued from Page 1) 

at Donahue's in New Jersey, and the 
latest reports have it that he was re- 
ceived with great acclaim when he 
played for the Proms at La Salle and 
Immaculata in Philadelphia last week. 

The Hershey Ballroom on a soft 
spring night is certainly the ideal set- 
ting for Johnny McGee's soft sweet 
music. With such a setting and such 
a band this year's Junior Prom pro- 
mises to be a most memorable oc- 
casion. We predict that just as 
Johnny's singing cornet has made his- 
tory in the realm of popular music 
so will the Prom of 1940 be a historic 
one in the social annals of L. V.

Many Library Books 
Moved To Basement 

With the completion of the shelves 
in the basement of the library, some 
of the books have been transferred 
there from the other parts of the lib- 
rary. One important section set up 
there is the collection of all the edu- 
cation books, those listed in the cata- 
logue under 370 through 379. All of 
the books in French and German have 
also been taken to the basement. In 
addition to these two groups are all 
the oversized books hitherto found 
throughout the library. 

For those who might wish to use 
these books it is noted that permanent 
reference books for the education de- 
partment will still be on the reserve 
shelf. The oversized books, marked 
on the catalogue cards by *, include 
many subjects and for the most part 
are large, illustrated, cultural volumes 
too big for shelving. To obtain any 
from these three groups it is neces- 
sary to get them during the hours 
the basement is open which are 9-12

Sports Statistics 
^ by alex 

Old man weather has at last shed 
a smile upon the sporting endeavors 
of the Flying Dutchmen, and we find 
that some games have been played. 
Fear is now being expressed that Sol 
won't last until May Day, thus doing 
away with that gala day. But that's 
straying from the subject. 

Two baseball games have been play- 
ed to date, both of them going to Leb- 
anon Valley opponents, giving the 
Dutchmen two setbacks. In the Wash- 
ington game, the Valley went down 
before a seasoned outfit that had al- 
ready turned in three wins. Our lads 
hadn't even seen a curve up to that 
time, but they didn't do so badly. 
Chris Walk was the wonder boy for 
the locals in that tussle, pounding out 
two hits. 

However, after a couple of hard 
practices under the guiding bark of 
Coach Ullery, the Dutchmen journey- 
ed to Ursinus and suffered another 
loss, at the hands of the Bears. Dis- 
appointment reigned in the ranks of 
the Blue and White because the boys 
were out for their first league win. 

And so, after witnessing both bat- 
tles, our opinion is that the pitchers 
are putting themselves in a hole, and 
then working extra hard to get out of 
it. They have a tendency to issue too 
many free tickets on the base paths. 
Untimely errors come in handy for our 
opponents. Perhaps the most obvious 
fault was the failure to hit in the 
clutch, leaving too many men strand- 
ed on the pathways. . They were all 
potential runs. 

Obvious to some of the spectators 
is the new type of play displayed by 
the Valley. It may not be so very 
evident, but there seems to be more 
heads-up ball playing than in prev- 
ious years. Maybe we're wrong, but 
ur guess is that Coach Ullery has the 
lads hustling. Watch them on May 

Speaking of watching, it certainly 

is a crime the way the student body re- 
acts to a ball game. One would gather 
the impression that the players are 
out there for their health. Well they're 
not. They're playing for the glory of 
good old L. V. C, and if the students 
can't come out to give the fellows 
some encouragement, they should go 
hang their heads in shame. The first 
ones to pan the team when it loses, 
are those who sit on the campus and 
wait for someone to tell them the 
score. It certainly is a shame. 

The tennis team journeyed to Lan- 
caster to meet F. & M. They came 
back on the short end of a 7-2 score. 
The Diplomats who have been prac- 
ticing all winter under the eagle eye 
of a coach, simply had too much for 
Stew Shapiro and his boys. The 
only local victories were those in the 
doubles, but Stewie feels that with a 
little more practice his lads will be 
up with the best of them. 

It looks as though the campus has 
taken archery seriously. One usually 
finds a couple of Robin Hoods bend- 
ing their bows and letting their ar- 
rows fly in the general direction of 
the target. We would like to extend 
a warning to those at the east end of 
the dorm, and that is watch your 

Also prominent in rising popularity 
are mushball and golfing. There's 
one consolation in playing soft ball, 
you can usually see the apple. In golf, 
well, if the divots are replaced, it 
isn't a bad form of exercise. 

Rising from the obscure rolls of the 
football untouchables to the ranks of 
the athletic greats of our Alma Mat- 
er, our hero's career is an interesting 

In true Alger style, he was an in- 
significant, chubby, pleasant rascal 
upon his advent into high school. Eag- 
er to participate in athletics, he tried 

Baseball Captain 


. hard hitting leader 

all means to become part of the 
teams. But the best he could do was 
to be elected a member of the cheer 
leading squad. Undaunted, he work- 
ed conscientiously to cheer the teams 
that he was later to lead to victory. 

His peppy spirit attracted the fan- 
cy of the coach, and he was promoted 
to the Jay-Vee squad, captaining them 
to a successful season. Climaxing his 
scholastic career by quarterbacking 
his team to the best grid season in 
the history of the school, our fair- 
haired boy was ready to matriculate 
at Lebanon Valley College. 

His athletic interests were not 
solely confined to football. Basketball 
was one of his side-lines, playing var- 
sity ball for three years. In baseball, 
he gained valuable experience as a 
receiver on a home town semi-pro 

His career at Lebanon Valley is 
well known and to but mention the 
name of Chris Walk would cause 
many to begin to review his deeds. 
Playing quarterback for four years, 
Chris showed excellent ability as a 
signal caller. In baseball, his strate- 
gic handling of hurlers brought com- 
ments of approval from the coaches, 
as well as from opponents. His peg 
to second was one to be feared, and 
not many attempted to take the key- 
stone sack on a steal. 

And now he is ending his athletic 
life at Lebanon Valley. Upon the 
completion of the baseball season, 
Chris will say farewell to collegiate 
sports, and try his hand at the game 
of life. His wish is that Frank Kuhn, 
his roommate, whom he has quarter- 
backed and caught to rising fame, 
will carry on for the glory of 312. 

So we salute this scrappy and sin- 
cere athlete, and say adieu. May his 
spirit prevail on the campus of L. V. 

Mushball Games Off; 
No Field Available 

The intramural softball contests 
which were to have been run off under 
Men's Senate sponsorship have ap- 
parently been cancelled entirely be- 
cause no playing field is available. 

Finally favored by the, weather, 
two opposing teams were ready to in- 
augurate play last Saturday morning 
on the hockey field when word came 
that the hockey field was not to be 
used for that purpose. Such use, it 
was feared, would ruin the field's ap- 
pearance by destroying patches of 
grass, especially along the proposed 
base paths. 

Barred from the hockey field and 
prevented from the use of the athletic 
field by constant and necessary base- 
ball team practice, the softballers find 
themselves without any arena in 
which to exhibit their prowess and 
have resigned themselves to a season 
of inactivity. 

Last spring considerable interest 
was aroused in the playing of intra- 
mural softball, and before the end of 
the season strong rivalry for top posi- 
tion was developed. 

Washington Downs 
In Season Opener 

Visitors Head Dutchmen 
From First Inn ins 

At last, with the weather man con- 
senting, Lebanon Valley opened its 
1940 baseball season with Washington 
College of Maryland, and suffered its 
first setback, 8-4. 

Showing the signs of lack of actual 
competition rather than lack of prac- 
tice, the Valley lads failed to hit the 
offerings of the visiting hurlers. To 
insure their defeat, errors on the part 
of the Valleyites made the game look 
fairly sad at times. Further evidences 
of lack of ball playing was apparent 
in several mental errors recorded in 
the books. 

However, the prospects are not so 
very gloomy considering the fact that 
the visiting team had already won 
three games and that this was their 
fourth straight victory. 

At that the visiting coach was 
torced to relieve his starting hurler 
in order that any thoughts of scoring 
that the Dutchmen might have would 
be quelled. 

Captain Chris Walk proved to be 
the fair-haired local lad in slapping 
out two singles to aid the Blue and 
White cause. Fetter, the first sacksr 
for the Marylanders, had a field day 
at bat, garnering four hits for a per- 
fect day. 

Katchmer, starting for the Valley, 
got off to a bad start when the visit- 
ors tallied three runs. Kardash sin- 
gled and scored when Bremer slapped 
out a double into right center. Bremer 
scored on an error, while Copple com- 
pleted the scoring when he crossed the 
plate on Fetter's Texas League hit 
into left field. 

The Dutchmen came back in their 
half of the second inning to score one 
run when Ludwig strolled. Walk poied 
out a hit into center, Ludwig going to 
third, then scoring when Stevens 
heaved the apple into the bleachers 
back of third. 

Another tally was scored by the vis- 
itors in the third frame when Fetter 
doubled to center, Matala fielding the 
ball in the absence of Wright. The 
first sacker advanced on a passed bad 
and a missed third strike. 

Lebanon Valley made a desperate 
try in the same inning to tie up the 
score, but fell short by one run. 
Wright singled and was advanced ay 
Mease who was safe on an error. Af- 
ter Matala fanned, an infield out sent 
both runners onto the next base. Smith 
then tapped an infield single, scoring 
both runners, to make the score 4-3 
in favor of Washington. 

Weiler, relieving Katchmer in the 
fifth, allowed a run without a hit. 
Everett got on by a pitcher's error, 
going to second on a passed ball. Cop- 
ple walked, and the next batter hit in- 
to what should have been a perfect 
double play, but Staley's peg to first 
was wide, allowing Everett to score. 

In the last of the fifth, Matala dou- 
bled along the right field line, scoring 
when Schillo in beating out an infield 
tap was hit on the back with the ball. 
That completed the Valley scoring tor 
the day. 

Washington tallied in the seventn, 
eighth, and last frames to bring their 
total to eight runs. Everett dropped 
a double into left field, took third on 
a fielder's choice, and scored on a base 
knock into center. In the semi-final 
round, the visiting total was increased 
when an error, a walk, a fielder's 
choice, and a sacrifice fly, tallied a 
marker. The final round brought an- 
other run when Fetter singled, Schur- 
holy doubled, and Bush poled out a 
sacrifice fly to run the score to 8-4 in 
favor of Washington College. 

Representatives Attend 
Penn State Sport Day 

Last Saturday morning at 5:00 A. 
M. two carloads of girls left Annviile 
to attend a Women's Sport Day at 
Penn State Representatives from 
about twenty different colleges from 
Drexel and New Jersey College f "i 
Women as far west as Pittsburgh and 
Carnegie Tech attended the play day. 
Those girls representing Lebanon Val- 
ley were: Archery, Lucille Esbenshade 
and Margaretta Carey, Badminton, 
Joyce Hammond and Margery Holly, 
and Tennis, Isabel Shatto, Jane Smitn 
and Louise Saylor. Irene Seiders went 
along as a spectator. 

Arriving at Penn State about 9:30, 
the girls were first located in their 
rooms and then taken to their respec- 
ive activity centers. The badminton 
olayers played in a progressive tour- 
nament. The archers shot rounds at 
different distances. Tennis contestants 
were divided into two groups — one 
played a progressive tournament and 
the other attended a clinic. This clinic 
was conducted by Mary K. Browne, 
former national women's tennis cham- 
pion. In this group, probably one oi 
the most instructive of the day, the 
girls were given individual instruc- 
tion on the various fundamental ten- 
nis strokes. With an hour out for 
lunch, the groups were in action until 
4:00 when some of the girls took a 

A banquet was held in the evening 
at which there were approximately 
300 sportswomen. Following the ban- 
quet, all the representatives from Ine 
different colleges were the guests of 
the Penn State Circus. 

After spending the night at Penn 
State, the girls returned to L. V. Sun- 
day afternoon rather tired, but quite 
overwhelmed with the way in which 
a play day on such a large scale can 
be run.

To Face Strong Southerners 

To add to the gaiety and coU 

the May Day festivities, a cor*

White tennis and baseball teams h 

been arranged. Replacing the t r 
tional Albright battles on that ^ 
will be the Western Maryland S q 
noted for their power on the n +i , 
fields. athlfct 'c 
In the morning, Stew Shapi ro w , 
lead his tennis cohorts aganist - 
Marylanders in an effort to record 


victory. The good weather has 
the team an opportunity to 

get i n 

some intensive practice, Manager Sh 
piro has been holding eliminations 
an attempt to cut his squad down [' 
playing size, and at the latest indie " 
tions, Shapiro will lead off in the o 
spot, followed by Seiverling, Grimm 
Lentz, Creeger, and Weigley, j n y.' 
singles. The doubles that showed u " 
well at F. & M. will get the call I 
that department. 

In the afternoon, immediately f n [. 
lowing the events on the campus, the 
baseball team will take the field 
against the hai-d-hitting boys from 
Western Maryland. The Valley, hav. 
ing lost two games so far, is out gun. 
ning for the big one to make the day 
complete. Coach Ullery will hold some 
long sessions with the apple-tossers 
n an effort to polish up some of the 
rough spots that were evident in the 
last game. 

Last year, the Marylanders batted 
the Dutchmen around to the score of 
11-6. Katchmer, who had started, had 
d bad sixth inning in which seven runs 
were scored. This year the hurling 
assignment may again fall on Katch- 
mer who has shown improvement in 
his control. Available in case Katcn- 
mer does not get the call are Kuhn, 
Walters, and Weiler. As for the rest 
of the team, Coach Ullery may do a 
bit of changing in an effort to get a 
little more punch in the pinches.

Timely bingles by Thompson, Harris,

from the mound. Weiler took over the

more Ursinus men to cross the 

Fine relief pitching by 'Smoke 
MacMahon, who cut short a 4th inning 
uprising by the Dutchmen with a dou- 
ble play, aided the home cause until 
he was relieved in favor of Chalk in 
the ninth. The latter, taking over the 
mound duties with one out and two 
men on base, made short work of the 
next two batters to bring the L. V. 
rally to an end. 

The numerous highlights of the 
game included Mease's unassisted dou- 
ble play, Smith's three hits, two bin- 
gles apiece by Mease, Matala, Walk 
and Kuhn and seven extra base hits 
by the Dutchmen. Kuhn walked 7 and 
struck out two of the opposing bats-

Only two of the Bears, Moyer and 
Thompson, could garner more than

Shak espeare Class Group 
Visits Hedgerow Theatre 

A group of tho class studying 
Shakespeare this year under Dr. Wal- 
lace attended a matinee performance 
of King Henry the IV, Part I, last 
Saturday afternoon. Two cars con- 
taining Dr. Wallace, Martha Jane 
Koontz, Kay Coleman, Paul Horn, 
Frances Prutzman, Luke Haines, 
Tcny Wallace, and Mabel Jane Miller- 
started out for the theatre at Moylan, 
Rose Valley, where the Hedgerow 
Theatre is located, at about eleven 
A. M. 

The group found the theatre to be 
a dilapidated-looking, remodeled barn 
of gray cement. First to greet their 
eyes were two strange wooden figures 
that caused many comments. Finally 
they decided they might be models of 
the Trojan horse and the Spirit of 
Innocence. At one side of the barn 
was a kind of rock garden with a few 
flowers blooming and a little brook 
running through it. Mounting the 
stone steps to an unpretentious door 
the group saw the only modern thing 
about, which was the box-office. 

Before entering the auditorium a 
long side room was explored which 
proved to be a sort of coffee room 
where refreshments were served be- 
tween acts. Pictures of actors de- 
corated the walls. In the hall a large 
mirror, astonishingly big, sent back 
the images of the L. V. C. group. 
They could not figure out where the 
entrance was until a small door be- 
side the mirror was discovered. The 
auditorium itself made Engle Hall 
seem huge for its seating capacity is 
enly 150. The stage, too, is quite 
small but they use it to such fine ad- 
vantage that the audience scarcely 
realizes it. For seats padded wooden 
benches with single boards for backs 
grow higher at the back of the room 
so that one must rest his feet on 

A real treat was the play which 
was directed by Jasper Deeter and 
in which William Sheppard played 
the part of Falstaff in so fine a man- 
ner that Dr. Wallace thought him 
better than Maurice Evans in that 
role. Among the other actors were a 
few students who are studying at the 
Hedgerow and from whose tuition, in- 
cidentally, the company is partially 
financed. The same background was 
used with only small changes through- 
out the play. A rounded cyclorama, 
on which a great variety of spotlights 
which lent greatly to the atmosphere 
played, was the background. Two pil- 
lars which served as parts of a fire- 
place, an entrance to a room, and a 
background for the throne are ex- 
amples of to what advantage they 
use what they have. Chairs were al- 
most the only furniture used. 

The eight from L. V. walked from 
Elizabethan atmosphere feeling as if 
they were still in that other world, 
so well was the play presented. The 
surroundings seemed Elizabethan. 
But, alas, all too soon were they 
brought back to reality when one car 
suffered from an acute attack of flat- 
tiritis and had to have first aid right 
in front of the Hedgerow theatre. 
Stopping at the Arcadia for dinner 
the pilgrims gained stamina for the 
trip home through the pleasant night.

breakfast at seven? 

These opinions, of early and late 
risers, were given to one of LA 
VIE'S reporters when he posed the 
following questions : 

Are you in favor of having break- 
fast served on the cafeteria plan? 
That is, would you like to have the 
opportunity of getting your breakfast 
any time from seven to eight-thirty 
in the morning? 

Richard WeagleyL senior — Although 
cafeteria breakfast is fine in theory 
I think it can never be carried out 
with any degree of efficiency in this 

Daniel Seiverling, senior — Contrary 
to the opinion of R. Perishing Weag- 
ley, I believe this would be a practical 
idea. More students would be getting 
their money's worth and the waiters 
wouldn't be bothered with those strag- 
glers coming in at 7:17. 

Anna Mae Bamberger, junior — For 
those of us who hate to get up at 6:30 
especially on cold winter mornings, 
this seems like a good idea. Perhaps 
the time should be extended, so that 
we could eat breakfast after chapel 
if we desired. 

Lorraine Kaufman, sophomore — I 
think it would be a good idea but I 
am sure they would all come at 8:20. 
Therefore why not have breakfast at 
the same time? 

Robert Wright, junior— Excellent 
idea. I never get up for breakfast 
because it is too early. Here's hoping 
L. V. C. will adopt this plan. 

Jane Ehrhart, junior— -Yes, provid- 
ed they extend the time to 9 o'clock 
and serve coffee and toast. 

John Moller, senior — From the 
students point of view it is a great 
help, because seven o'clock is an early 
hour to get up for breakfast. I think 
it should be given a try. 

Marjorie Holly, sophomore — Yes, 
because it would give those people 
who do not have eight o'clock classes 
a chance to sleep longer. Also it 
would add variety in our plan of 
serving meals. This might bring 
variety of food and give the waiters 
a break. 

Harry Matala, freshman— It you 
do not have an eight o'clock class it 
is useless to get up at 6:30 for break- 
fast. I am very much in favor of the 
time mentioned. 

Irene Seiders, junior — I think it is 
O. K., but they would have to get a 
better system of keeping the food 

Y Cabinets Installed 
In Consecration Service 

The cabinets cf the two Christian 
organizations of the campus were in- 
stalled at the daily chapel exercises 
Wednesday morning. The program 
was opened by the singing of a hymn 
and the praying of the Lord's Prayer. 
Dr. Lynch then proceeded to intro- 
duce the retiring presidents of the 
two organizations, Evelyn Miller and 
Paul Horn.who expressed their grati- 
tude for the fine spirit of the student 
body throughout the year. 

Continuing, Dr. Lynch presented 
the newly elected presidents, Anna 
Mae Bomberger and Marlin Espen- 
shade who werd formally inducted in- 
to office. Following their announce- 
ment, the cabinet members were also 
formally inducted into their duties. 

The program was closed with a 
prayer by Dr. Lynch and the singing 
of "Follow the Gleam," a hymn of 


warm for such r« long period of time. 
I am sure this point can be remedied 
and L. V. C. will have a cafeteria 

Donald Haverstick, junior — As pub- 
licity agent for the college annex 
across from Karl's, I am against it. 

Norma Grogan, fre: hnuxn — Sounds 
like an excellent idea. If you don't 
have an eight o'clock class and you 
get up for breakfast, you usually go 
back to bed and sleep through chapel. 

Carl Ehrhart, senior — Sure, I'm in 
favor of anything calculated to re- 
duce the strain on student allowances. 
Besides, who wants to get up in the 
middle of the night to go to breakfast. 

Martha Jane Koontz, junior — With 
no eight o'clock classes I definitely do 
not like to get up for breakfast. You 
sure can get this extra sleep which 
any student can use. 

Professor Carmean — At a Student- 
Faculty council meeting this idea was 
suggested about two or three years 
ago. The kitchen force was the one 
who objected. I think it would be an 
excellent idea to serve breakfast from 
7 to 8:30, having the last serving at 
8:20, so that it would not conflict with 
the chapel period. 

Louise Saylor, senior — Indeed, all I 
say is, "I wish I were here next year." 
In recent years the more progressive 
institutions have adopted this plan. 
Why not L. V. C?

With a powerfully big week-end 
staring us in the face we are wonder-, 
ing whether we have enough of that 
necessary gumption to see it through 
with all its hustle and bustle and ex- 
citement. However, if the prospec- 
tive students and alumni think they 
can do it, old veterans like ourselves 
are certainly not incapable of it. To 
those aforesaid prospective studes and 
alumni we extend a welcome avec bon 
coeor and hope that upon reaching 
the end of this luscious ( ? ) little col- 
umn they will not feel too badly the 
need of some good strong soap, a 
scrub brush, and some hot water! 

* * * * 

The increase in the number of day- 
light hours brought about by our kind 
friend D. S. T., who so unmercifully 
cheated us out of a whole hour of 
good sound sleep, has rendered the 
over-crowded conditions of the dor- 
mitory parlors (in North Hall partic- 
ularly) no longer an unsolved prob- 
lem. Young loves now seek the 
haunts of nature for their tete- 
a-tetes (?)

It is rumored that the L. V. Co-eds 
participated in more than the requir- 
ed sports at Penn State play day. No 
one witnessed those tender reunions, 
did they Janie and Izzie? Number-one- 
man Sherfel seems to be having un- 
seen competition these days. Better 
get behind the ball, Bill. Penn State's 
in the lead. Those frat men have it 
all over Philo and Kalo according to 
one South Haller. Perhaps Irene can 
enlighten us upon their dinners and 
frat houses. 

* * * * , * ! 

The examples which certain mem- 
bers of student governing bodies set 
for the poor underdogs, upon whom 
punishment is usually inflicted, are 
quite astounding to say the least. 
Those three high and mighty senators, 
dragged before the judges of such 
misconduct of which they were accus- 
ed, may come down a peg or three and 
toe the mark a little better after last 
week's occurrence.

"Scoop" doesn't seem to be able to 
retire completely from this paper. 
Lately he's been showing the new as- 
sociate editor the ropes which ap- 
pears to be quite a difficult job since 
it requires so much time. Covering 
the May Day scoop was a steady 
proposition! !

Our head waiter has deserted his 
crew several times lately to eat with 
"the 400" again. Can it be that his 
responsibility is too much to bear 
standing up or were the waiters mak- 
ing him carry a few trays ? Eh, 
Chris ? ? 

Poor little "Junior" in ground-hog 
heaven has our sincerest prayers for 
as happy a life there as he has had 
here. "Poppa" Espie is fast recover- 
ing from the shock for he has filled 
Junior's place in his affections with 
"Allie" and "Ellen." The latter is the 
snake (still missing at this writing) 
which may find himself as a not-too- 
welcome bed partner to some surpris- 
ed young man in the Men's dorm any

Now what could Don "strip-teaser" 
Haverstick have been doing at "Rec" 
hour on Tuesday night shedding his 
clothes in the middle of the dance 
floor ? No need to worry, though — 
the gym WAS a wee bit warm and he 
only went as far as his jacket. We 
thought he might have been trying 
to give the Bijou competition.

Ah! Spring at last, but keep your 
overcoats and galoshes handy; you 
may need them for May Day. 

Frank Shenk has received the blue 
ribbon tor the "faux pas" of the week. 
Prof. Stokes asked the class to cite a 
use for lead; and our little man, in all 
seriousness, quickly responded "lead 
pencils." Although the multitude 
laughed at you Frank, it would be in- 
teresting to know what the other 
members thought first. 

Some mothers have gained a repu- 
tation for being good bakers and thus 
placed their son's lunches in danger. 
In the course of a Germanic seizure of 
a piece of Franklin Patschke's cake, 
several "frosh" were recipients of an 
unwelcomed morsel. It appears that 
Frank's mother got the soap powder 
mixed with the confectioner's sugar. 
Those poor fellows certainly lathered 
at the mouth. 

The day student roomers are begin- 
ning to see "Clint" Zimmerman more 
frequently than before. Doea our lit-

of iniquity," where the air is fouled 
by card players, where terms spurt 
forth in the vernacular, and where the 
men think of dancing. Oh! "Zimmy," 
be careful, or you, too, will have an 
ace up your sleeve. 

The other day the "chem lab" be- 
came a roaring senate chamber, as a 
group of day students began to dis- 
cuss the old thorn in the administra- 
tion's side — conditions in the M. D. S. 
R. A group led by Fox and Reber de- 
clared that a special home for the 
travelers would be a distraction from 
true student life. Sam Gittlen, the 
supreme authority on all subjects, 
battled for complete reconstruction. 
Miller, Smee, and Nichols, the loudest 
of them all, cried for conservative ren- 
ovation plans. What do the others 

In this May Day issue, it is only 
proper that your reporter should wel- 
come all the prospective students to 
our campus. I trust that we shall 
have made their little visit pleasing

the fact that there is no place like L.

About thirty-five couples had a 
thoroughly good time at the Day 
Students' Dance, last Friday evening, 
April 19. The dance was held in the 
Palm Room of the Hotel Weimer, 
Lebanon. Those in attendance danced 
to the tunes of the Lebanonian Club 
Orchestra from 8:30 P. M. to mid- 
night. The program was a very in-

keep everybody jolly. Professors 
Black and Stokes were the chaperones 
for the evening.

probably be used for decoration and 
lighting. Entertainment will consist 
of games, cards, and possibly dancing. 

Edna Rutherford and Robert Guiir- 
van are committee chairmen for the 
party and they will be assisted by 
Margaretta Carey, Frances Prutz- 
man, and several Y. M. C. A. cabinet

This march is in five entirely dif-

is played, followed by a rendition of 
the march as Mascagni, the composer 
of Cavalleria Rusticana might have 
written it. Then there is an arrange-

Waltz by Strauss. Next the march is 
played as a modern jazz band would 
play it. Finally the march is arrang-

All indications are to the effect that 
the program will be on a par with 
those so far rendered by the other

twenty-five cents. 

Besides preparing for this concert 
the band has scheduled several play- 
ing engagements for the near future. 
Memorial Day the girls will travel to

I WO Valley A irmen 
Acquire Licenses 
As Private Pilots 

Two of the Lebanon Valley stud- 
ents enrolled in the new C. A. A. pilot 
training course, John Lynch and 
David Lenker, having completed the 
required preliminary study, ground, 
and flight work, successfully passed 
the rigid examination of the govern- 
ment inspector to win for themselves 
licenses as private pilots. 

The examination, a merciless com- 
mentary on the student's aeronautical 
knowledge and experience, consisted 
of various tests of the applicant's 
aeronautical skill. Following are some 
of the required maneuvers as indi- 
cated in the Civil Aeronautics Bul- 
letin No. 22. 

The applicant shall demonstrate 
satisfactorily his ability to pilot an 
airci-aft in solo flight and, in addition 
to normal take-offs, turns, and land- 
ings, to perform satisfactorily the fol : 
lowing maneuvers: 

From 1,500 feet, with engine throt- 
tled, a 360° turn and a landing in 
normal landing attitude, the wheels 
touching the ground beyond and with- 
in 300 feet of a line or point desig- 
nated by the examining Authority in- 

From 1,000 feet, with engine throt- 
tled, a 180" turn and a landing in 
normal landing attitude, the wheels 
touching the ground within 300 feet 
of a point or a line designated by the 
examining Authority inspector. 

A series of 3 shallow and 3 steep 
figure 8 turns, and one 720" steep 
power turn in each direction. During 
these maneuvers the pilot shall not

Dr. Alice Soloman 
Speaks In Chapel 
On Modern Germany 

Dr. Alice Soloman, a native of Ger- 
many, was the guest speaker of the 
college at an extended chapel pro- 
gram Tuesday morning, May 7. This 
address was one of several programs 
given throughout the year, which 
have been devoted to international re- 
lations. Dr. Soloman was the first 
woman to receive the degree of doctor 
of philosophy from the University of 
Berlin, where she later was given the 
degree of Doctor of Medicine. The 
speaker is chiefly interested in 
women's affairs, having been the ori- 
ginator of the German National Coun- 
cil for Women and leader of the 
Women's Relief Corps during the 
World War. In 1937 Dr. Soloman was 
exiled from Germany for reasons un- 
known to her. 

Dr. Alice Soloman's useful and in- 
teresting life enabled her to speak 
intelligently on Modern Germany and 
German Women Under the Nazi Rule. 
One of Hitler's main polices since he 
gained control is the so-called Back to 
the Home movement. Women are forced 
to work in their own homes and raise

Metallurgy Students 
Take Several Trips 

Students in the chemistry depart- 
ment taking the course in metallurgy 
augmented their textbook study of 
metallurgical processes this past week 
with two trips to nearby steel plants 
and foundries. 

Monday afternoon the group, with 
Professor Bender, visited a foundry in 
Lebanon. Probably the most interest- 
ing feature of the tour of the estab- 
lishment was the emptying of the 
charge from a large electric furnace. 

Wednesday afternoon the class vis- 
ited a plant in Pottstown. Again first 
hand information of the manufacture 
of iron and steel objects was obtain- 
ed. An unfortunate happening was a 
slight damaging of one of the cars 
in which the group was travelling 
when it became involved in a colli- 

Yearbook Delivery 
To Be Slightly Late 

The date of issue of the 1941 Quit- 
tapahilla, student annual publication 
of the Junior Class, will be later than 
had been planned, the editor, Charles 
Beittel, announced when he was ques- 
tioned as to a possible publication 
date. The books, which had been ten- 
tatively scheduled to appear in the 
early part of this month, will not be 
in the hands of the students, it was 
learned, until the end of this month 
or the first week in June. They will 
be distributed, however, before the 
conclusion of the school year. 

Reason for the advancement of the 
publication date was explained as a 
failure to get copy, both in plates and 
write ups, to the printers in sufficient 
time to permit the starting of print- 
ing at an early enough date. 

The book will tend toward simplic- 
ity of format. The coverage insofar 
as subject matter is concerned will be 
much the same as former issues of 
the yearbook. 

Creditable Acting 
By Entire Company 
In Philo-Clio Play 

Shavian Satire Piece 
Directed, Staged Well 

Honors are due to the entire cast 
of "Arms and the Man" for an unex- 
pected but enjoyably fine perform- 
ance. Working with a piece by Shaw 
is no easy job with the long speeches 
and complete satire. The cast seemed 
to catch the gist of it all with real 
insight even though their audience is 
still laughing at the wrong spots. 

Philo-Clio's play marked the last 
participation on campus for a few 
of the senior members of the cast. 
Ralph Lloyd, Bill Bender, and John 
Lynch made their farewell appear- 
ances. As staging and lighting direct- 
or, Paul Horn did his last job in the 
same fine manner. For so long has 
he carried this end of L. V.'s drama- 
tics that we wonder who is going to 
be able to take over next year. A 
shiny medal to you, Paul, for some ex- 
cellent staging. 

As usual, the character actors came 
off with the loudest applause even 
though the romantic leads handled 
themselves well. Dennis Sherk as Ni- 
cola really did the stoop-shouldered, 
sniveling, straw-haired old butler in 
a surprising manner. Not once did 
he slip out of character while it took 
many of the audience quite a while 
to discover who Nicola was. Louka, 
Peggy Boyd, who before distinguished 
herself as a different sort of maid,

For some time it has been apparent 
that college administrative forces, 
being cognizant of the general dis- 
satisfaction among the students with 
the present chapel system of compul- 
sory daily attendance, have been seek- 
ing a remedy of a nature satisfactory 
to the general student body and yet 
such that a proper religious emphasis 
would not be removed from the stud 
ents' lives but, if at all possible, 
would be strengthened. 

Last week for the first time printed 
expression of an opinion on this chap 
el question was permitted to find its 
way into the columns of LA VIE. It 
is to be sincerely hoped that such an 
expression was neither premature nor 
inaptly stated, for in either case its 
primary purpose would have been de 
feated. That purpose was and is to 
make plain the common opinion of 
the worth or worthlessness of the 
average chapel period, to point out if 
possible an acceptable corrective, to 
indicate clearly that there is still ex- 
istent a wholesome recognition of the 
necessity for religious activity, and 
that whole-hearted support may be 
expected on every hand if a worth 
while corrective measure is inaugur 

What is the common opinion of the 
worth of the present chapel setup? 
It must be felt that the general poor 
attendance at chapel in spite of vigor- 
ous efforts to insure that attendance 
does not indicate any great liking of 
arrangements as they now stand. Re 
peated cutting beyond the lenient al 
lowance of one absence a week with 
out benefit of excuse must mean dis- 

Is there any generally acceptable 
corrective step? Yes. The rumored 
possibility of a change to a system 
involving but one chapel period a 
week of forty-five minutes or an hour 
in length and with assemblage in the 
College Church does indeed seem to 
meet with universal approval. If this 
rumor, which was a part of general 
campus knowledge long before anv 
publication of it, is not based in fact, 
perhaps it will at any event before 
long acquire a factual basis. 

Is this measure assured the support 
of the general student body? Yes. If 
the answers to queries asked of a 
typical cross section of the students 
by one of LA VIE'S reporters may 
be used as any sort of a reliable 
criterion, this measure, if adopted, 
would meet with something close to 
complete support. 

At least there can be no harm in a 
provisory trial of a plan which is ap- 
parently so highly and widely favored 
by those whom it most concerns and

day studentettes 

By Wanda Ride 

Certainly we should hear no com- 
plaints about the disagreeable inade- 
quacy of the accommodations for day 
students. The gals that aren't either 
in the Library or in classes are bound 
to be found strolling or parked on the 
campus. Just another advantage of 
the spring season! 


By Umbra 

Eh bien, mes amis (?), another 
memorable weekend has been crossed 
off our date books and we can really 
write in our diaries in all sincerity as 
our criticism of that succession of en- 
joyable events " 'Twas grand." On the 
other hand some few perpetual pessi- 
mists may claim grounds for adverse 
sentiments, but let them rave on, 
we're happy! 

When assistants were due to escort 
the sub-frosh to their departmental 
exams on Saturday morn, one Max 
Shively found the hour much too early 
and the bed much too comfortable. 
Evidently this young stay-a-bed fig- 
ured the campus wasn't THAT big 
that they'd lose their way without his 
guiding presence. Luckily there were 
other suckers who were willing to part 
with their beds to do the job. 

* * * 

Sidelines on Philo's dinner-dance 
do not seem to be so numerous this 
year, unless it's just that we don't 
know the right people. In which case 
will the said group of people please 
lend a hand in spreading those undev- 
iably savory tales which have not 
came to our attention. But now to tell 
all we DO know. 

Monday morning in the D. S. R. 
witnessed an unusual number of yawns 
and blissful sighs. No doubt the 
sighs fit in each lassie's thought as 
she recalled step by step the "most 
marvelous week end." And oh-h-h-h! 
how proud of those Philokosmian pen- 
dants they all were. 

After many weeks of indecision, 
thought, contemplation, anticipation 
and so on, Touchie finally dared to 
venture to have her hair cut. And 
now that the deed has been executed, 
the day studentettes no longer hear, 
"Shall I or shall I not?" but "Do you 
or don't you like it?" 

on weekly chapel 

In the last edition of LA VIE it 
was stated that there may be a change 
next year in the manner of conduct- 
ing the chapel period. The idea of 
holding chapel for 45 minutes once a 
week in the College Church instead 
of daily as it is at present has evoked 
numerous personal opinions from the 
student body. 

Lucille Esbenshade — I am of the 
opinion that a 45 minute chapel might 
be more beneficial to the students than 
the present chapel period. 

Donald BartleV—l think the idea is 
worth a try. It sounds good to me 
and I don't see why we haven't at- 
tempted it before. 

Samuel Sioner — I believe that a 
change is needed because the students 
aren't receiving any spiritual benefit 
from the present chapel seiwice. 

Louellu Sehindel — I am entirely in 
favor of it and I believe it is worth 
a try if good speakers are obtained. 

Dennis Sherk—l feel that the Col- 
lege Church would afford a more fit- 
ting atmosphere for the chapel period. 

Jackson Zellers — It is my opinion 
that having chapel once a week would 
eliminate the rush, trouble, and ad- 
ditional time necessary for attending 
each morning. 

Feme Poet — I think it is a 
idea. The extended period in tV^^ 
lege Church would tend to create 
more religious spirit among; tho ,

Marian Kreider, the ever-practical, 
has definitely become a victim oi 
that traditional spring emotion. She 
walked into a Latin class an hour 
early, then came out asking if the per- 
sons there were prospective students. 
Marian, when you've reached the 
stage where you no longer recognize 
upper-classmen, you aren't slipping 
any more — you've slipped! 

If you could have seen Marjorie 
Kishpaugh standing in the middle of 
the street with cars coming both di- 
rections, you'd have sworn that she 
was either stark mad or aiming to 
commit suicide. She tells us that she 
was "waiting for Eleanor." It sounds 
all right, but she certainly does choose 
queer places to wait. 

iGracie Smith is fast learning the 
art of developing a double social life. 
Between Muhlenburg and Lebanon 
Valley, she lets hardly a day pass 
without worrying a little bit about 
either a long distance phone call or a 
special delivery letter. From the gay 
expression on Grade's face, it evident- 
ly doesn't prove too irksome. 

In spite of Betty Anne's vigorous at- 
tempts at keeping things quiet, we've 
found out a few things. Because she 
usually behaves rather well, the ex- 
posure isn't too glaring, but here's a 
hint: if you want an ingenious idea or 
method to get out of classes, work, or 
anything not agreeable to your mood 
of the moment, just see B. A.

When we saw our boy Bob with a 
new girl-friend we decided that North 
Hall's fair-haired lassie had picked a 
quarrel with her romeo at the wrong- 
moment. And why wasn't Betty with 
that tall tobacco-dealer alumnus from 
Lebanon? There were a few "import- 
ed" numbers present also in the true 
Philo fashion, as in the case of Hi— 
a Worchester import, no less! Kenny 
Morrow did all right for himself, too, 
with "just one of the Smith girls." To 
top everything off Philo even had 
speakers to entertain (?) the guests, 
among whom were Freshman Beckner 
saying in behalf of his fellow under- 
pups "I'm having a good time, are 
you?" and none other than two poeti- 
cally minded personages — a Miss 
Evans and a Mr. Hemperly — to add 
their four cents worth of poems to the

About what happened "after the 
ball was over" we won't say too 
much (the high spots of all points 
east and west of Wernersville were 
hit to be sure), but we do think it 
strange that a certain young lady had 
to sit on a cushion on the floor of the 
car on the return trip — woe unto mod- 
ern maids, for the days of chivalrous 
gents are gone (but not forgotten) !

The spring hasn't made only young 
MEN'S fancies turn to thoughts of 
love, it seems she has cast her spell 
upon some of the girls, too. That 
even a history class can have its ro- 
mantic moments was proved the other 
day when Don Staley received a note 
from an admiring female who begged 
him to (quote) "stop smiling at me, 
you are driving me crazy." (Unquote). 
Was it just the smile that prompted 
this billet-doux, or can a deeper mean- 
ing be read into it? Perhaps a bit of 
Fish(er)ing around would solve the 
mystery ! ! ! 

"While the cat's away the mice will

some one decided to play fireman the 
following night — behind the occupants'

before we become too inquisitive and

T he latest gripe we've developed is 
the ban put on mushball. That was 
a great source of exercise, fun, and 
competition for the more or less in- 
active on the campus. To deprive 
them of their opportunity to get that 
bit of competition is certainly a lack 
of something on the part of authori- 
ties. Perhaps our next major sport 
will be tiddly-winks. Who knows ? 

Our tennis team again suffered a 
set-back, this time at the hands of the 
well seasoned West Chester squad. 
The score of 7-2 forces one to think 
that the match was a rout. We can 
truthfully say that it wasn't. West 
Chester, having played eight matches, 
was well prepared, but nevertheless, 
was forced to play three sets in each 
of the matches with the Blue and 
White racket-wielders. 

Danny Seiverling showed nice form 
in winning the only singles match, 
while Stew Shapiro has yet to hit his 
stride. We might pass the remark 
that the West Chester number one

of approval from the crowds and his 
daring play brought gray hairs to his 
opponents. Great things were in store 
for him. 

The fall came. Football was in the 
air. The varsity was scrimmaging the 
scrubs. The thud of shoulder against 
thigh. A groan. A player was hurt 
He tried to rise. No luck. His knee 
was injured too badly. Grimly he 
limbed to his feet and slowly limped 
around. He was finished, but he 
didn't quit. He kept on plugging, 
giving his all. His knee was injured 
too badly for basketball. He tried 
gamely but the effort was too much. 

Finally after a year's rest, he re- 
turned to the basketball arena to again 
flash some of his sophomore form. 
But Bobby Artz wasn't the ball play- 
er he used to be. Although his knee 
was a terrific handicap, he stayed in 
there plugging away to make his 
dream come true — captain of the Fly- 
ing Dutchmen quintet. 

West Chester State 
Overpowers Netmen 
By Decisive Count 

In a match played Monday after- 
noon on the home court the local net- 
men went down in defeat before the 
lads from West Chester State 7-2. 
There was some improvement marked 
in the playing of the squad as a 
whole, and, considering the limited 
amount of practice that the court boys 
have had and the comparative inex- 
perience of some of the team members, 
the racketeers as a group showed 
much promise. 

In the two matches won, veteran 
Danny Seivenlinig overcame Clarke 
8-6, 4-6, 6-0, and Seiverling and Sha- 
piro teamed up to defeat Owen and 
Clarke 2-6, 7-5, 11-9. The other two 
doubles matches were defaulted in 
that there was insufficient playing 
time left. The scores:

Western Maryland 
Downs Valley Nine 
In Haphazard Fray 

One Bright Spot Of Day 
Mease's Booming Homer 

Western Maryland invaded Annville 
last Saturday and walked off with a 
15-2 victory over the Lebanon Valley 
baseball team. The Blue and White 
■"ailed to show any sort of baseball 
form and only at times seemed to be 
a ball team at all. Coach Ullery was 
thoroughly disgusted with the game 
[hat his boys put up before the lar^e 
crowd of students, alumni, and visit- 
ors who flocked to the athletic field 
after the close of the colorfol May 
Day Pageant on the campus. 

The visitors started off in fine styie, 
taking advantage of scoring opportu- 
nities in the beginning of the contest 
to score in the first three innings and 
gain a lead of 9-1. Continuing to slap 
the apple in the fifth and sixth 
frames, Western Maryland led at the 
end of the seven inning game by a 
wide margin. Bills and Stropp each 
rapped out the ball for three hits for 
the Western Maryland club. 

Supported by errorless ball by his 
mates in the field, Lee Lodge went 
the route of the game, giving up only 
five hits and only one base on baPs. 
The Dutchmen seemed unable to toudi 
the speed ball he heaved across the 
pla'e with consistency from start to 

Weiler, who started the game for 
he Valley, passed four men in his 
two inning reign on the rubber and 
allowed one hit to give Western Ma^-y- 
and the lead. Katchmer was then 
sent in but seemed hardly more effec- 
tive than Weiler, striking out four, 
bat suffering three free passes on his 
stay on the mound. 

Mease was the only Dutchman who 
showed any ability with the war 
clubs. The fair-haired shortstop slash- 
er* a home run into right center in 
the sixth inning on his second hit of 
the game. 

Of the three games played so far 
this season, last Saturday's contest 
was the most pitiful for it bore indi- 
cations of weakness in all possible de- 
partments. Heretofore the failings 
had been limited to one or two aspects 
of the team's play. But in this last 
encounter the nine was found want- 
ing in fielding, pitching, batting, and

Hapless Moravian 
Court Squad 8 - 1 

The swinging Dutchmen of the 
lct-al clay courts chalked up their first 
victory of the season when they rout- 
ed the visiting Moravian tennis team 
by a top-heavy 8-1 score in a com- 
pletely one-sided match played at 
home yesterday afternoon. 

Showing none of the former inde- 
cision, the local netmen easily smash- 
ed their way through to a triumph 
which at times seemed destined to be 
a complete shutout. Late in the after- 
noon, however, the Moravian doubles 
team of Blasco and Kilpatrick stiffen- 
ed to spank the Valley duet of Lentz 
and .Grimm, thus staving off the 
wielders of the whitewash brush.

You'll Enjoy Our "Zesty' 
Version of a Hot 
Weather Favorite — 





By Digitus 

Although May Day escaped the cyn- 
ical prophecy of snow or rain, it cer- 
tainly was far from being "springy." 
The knights and lancers seemed happy 
because they were dressed for any oc- 
casion but warm weather. With the 
girls it was a different story. They 
certainly looked cool and refreshed. 
Didn't they boys? 

"Who has a nickel" is the new cry 
that fills the halls of the lower room. 
No, the men have not become mercen- 
ary, but thirsty. A new automatic 
"coke" machine has been placed in the 
basement, and it has become the stud- 
ents' mechanical friend. Of course we 
tried to beat it with slugs and things, 
but this machine is tough. It not only 
rejects slugs, but worn or bent nick- 
els. There "ain't" no justice! 

Pinned upon the closed door of the 
L). S. R., the startling sign appeared, 
"Danger, Renovations Being Made by 
Finance Committee." At first one was 
led to believe that the famous seven- 
paged-petition had brought results; 
but when the door was opened, the an- 
uque odor of student agitation tinged 
me nostrils. Tables and chairs were 
placed in inconvenient as well as odd 
places. Believe it or not, senior agi- 
tators were implicated in this demon- 

"Johnny" Yingst's appearance with 
coat collar turned up and scarf about 
his neck has been the subject for 
much wonderment. When asked if he 
were cold, he simply gave a ' chessire 
cat" grin and answered nothing. Do 
not be alarmed at these strange ac- 
tions on the part ot our friend, but 
rather bear with him in his physiolog- 
ical handicap. "Johnny" lost hisi ton- 
sils if you must know. 

"Boboie" tJieber accompanied Thel- 
ma Trupe on a joyful "weenie" roast 
that almost cost the poor girl an en- 
tire new nervous system. It seems 
mat Thelma was enjoying a luscious 
morsel when "Bobbie," looKing about, 
i.ound a dead ground hog nearoy. (No, 
it wasn't junior.) Taking the dead 
rodent in his hands, Bobbie shoved it 
beneath the nose of dear Thelma. Poor 
girl! 1 will swear she bit ihe wood- 
chuck instead of the "weenie." Oh! 
• Bobbie," how could you be so cruel 
and ungentlemanly ? 

Congratulations to all the day stud- 
ent fellows who helped in any way to 
make our annual May Day a success. 
Miss Henderson has asked me not only 
to thank you for your kind cooperation 
but the spirit in which you entered 
the lists. Hail, true-blooded Valley 
knights, lancers, and court members! 

Dr. Alice Soloman 
Speaks In Chapel 
On Modern Germany 

(Continued from Page 1) 

children and more children, which are 
to be used as the future cannon fod- 
der of the German Third Reich. 
Women are taught by the Nazis that 
war is a necessity, that war should be 
the guiding point of one's life, and 
that the purpose of marriage is 
neither divine or national but political 
— children should be raised for the 

Dr. Soloman then continued to ex- 
plain the relationships between 
women and the family. Parents no 
longer have authority over their chil- 
dren—they are state controlled. Chil- 
dren are given to the state to be train- 
ed at the> age of three and when they 
have reached ten years of age they 
are given training in the use of guns. 
Those who are under state control are 
compelled to report to the Nazi au- 
thorities everything that they hear at 
home which would be detrimental to 
Hitler's cause. 

Hitler's theory of the superiority of 
the Aryan race was next discussed by 
the speaker. She spoke about Hitler's 
ferocious policy of sterilization of

(Continued from Page 1) 

put across some of the cleverest lines 
in the entire play. Aided by a quick 
tongue and equally quick step she ac- 
centuated the key to the satire. With 
a raised eyebrow and a toss of her 
shoulder, Martha Jane Koontz again 
showed her dramatic ability by her 
cool, commandeering air. As her hus- 
band, Ralph Lloyd gave a satisfying 
impression of the whisker-pulling 
military man who knows how to take 

To turn to our young romantics, 
Ellen Ruppersberger tripped around 
with a spring in her step, putting 
Raina's role to life with a freshness 
that pepped up spots which otherwise 
would have been most dull. If there 
was anything overdone about her por- 
trayal, we can perhaps excuse it be- 
cause it did keep the audience alert. 
Bluntschli, the hero, was played ad- 
equately by Harold Maurer with a bit 
of self-consciousness which may have 
been accredited to lack of experience 
on L. V.'s stage. Never-the-less, he 
did hold up his end of the plot in 
creditable style. 

We are left with two more charact- 
ers, namely Bill Bender as Serguis 
and John Lynch as a dark shadow 
of a Bulgarian officer. The former 
managed to drawl through his lines in 
a lethargical way which didn't add to 
the character. It was too bad that 
Johnny Lynch didn't have more op- 
portunity to show off his uniform. 

To take the play as a whole, the 
sets were fine with only a creaking 
bed to put in the amateur touch. Out- 
side of a few slips of the tongue and 
use of the wrong name plus some no- 
ticeably Dutch inflections of voice, the 
lines came across with consistent 
clarity. Costuming was well done in 
a way which certainly added to the 
whole impression as well as the in- 
dividual characters. Ellen Ruppers- 
berger was changed from the naive 
maid by candlelight to the lady in th. 
plumes. The colorful army uniforms 
injected a dash of color to rival the 
ladies' bright dress. Probably thos^ 
who saw the production carried away 
these superficial features rather than 
the study of human nature and iU 
foibles which lay under it all. 

misfits as well as his antagonism to- 
ward members of the Jewish race. 

Dr. Soloman then reviewed her own 
life in relationship to the Nazi go- 
vernment. Without warning she was 
called to the officials and after exten- 
sive questioning she was ordered to 
leave the country immediately. No 
reasons were ever given to her; the 
only reason that she can see might 
be that she had traveled extensively 
in other countries. 

The last topic discussed was the 
place of the church in Nazi Germany. 
Hitler states that there is to be one 
church instead of the former two. The 
Old Testament is not considered a 
part of the Bible, while only those 
passages of the New Testament which 
might show the German heroic spirit 
are retained and, then, portions of 
these sections and verses have been 
translated to fit in with Hitlerism. 
Dr. Soloman concluded by saying that 
Niemoller is not the only minister in 
Germany that is defending the faith 
but many thousands of pastors are 
still preaching the reality of God and 
moral values. 

When a comparison is made of all 
the chapel speakers of the past year, 
Dr. Soloman leads the group. Her ad 
dress was not only interesting, but 
showed an intelligent grasp of the 
situation. The only regret that one 
might have in regards to Dr. Solo- 
man's talk was that some of the 
L. V. C. students were too stupid or 
lazy to really appreciate it.

raised on a Nebraska farm, 40 miles 
from the nearest railway. 

Here, Glenn's musical career start- 
ed with his high school band and a 
mail order trombone. Between high 
school and the University of Colorado, 
Glenn put in a year with Boyd Sent- 
er's Orchestra in Denver. This taste 
of the music world affected him so 
that he left college after two years 
and set out for California where he 
joined Ben Pollack's famous band.

Festive Crowd Packs 
Into Hershey Ballroom 

Chaperones and guests alike are 
choing loud their praises of the best 
jance orchestra yet provided for a 
cam pus activity. Johnny McGee with 
hi? boys in brown and the brunette 
songstress thoroughly entertained the 
large crowd that packed the Hershey 
ballroom on Friday night. Not only 
wa s the music smooth for dancing 
but the special numbers provided by 
the singers proved to be genuinely 

Highlight of the evening was the 
solo dance by the Prom Leaders, 
Dorothy Jane Stabley and Barney 
Bentzel. On the stage to the strains 
of Stardust they did their number in 
worthy style. 

Although the ballroom was not de- 
corated specially for this affair, it ap- 
peared quite festive with all the gay 
summer evening gowns and contrast- 
ing suits of the men. Crisp thin 
gowns of sheer mouseline, lace, and 
swiss with magnified skirts flaring 
from the waist predominated al- 
though stripes and dots on heavier 
gowns were also seen. Hair-does and 
wrist corsages were most favored for 
the floral adornment. Not to be out- 
done, the men sported white coats 
and dark trousers for variety and 
ties of midnight-tolue or maroon add- 
ed a new dash along with many but- 
tonhole flowers. 

McGee's orchestra which is rapidly 
becoming better known to the extent 
°f an engagement at the New Yorker 
for next summer played a varied 
group of numbers. Most of the pro- 
menaders claimed the entertainers

Miss Hodgkins Talks 
At Annual Banquet 
Of W. A. A. Monday 

The annual banquet of the Women's 
Athletic Association was held on Mon- 
day evening, May 13, in the college 
dining room, which was appropriately 
decorated with posters made by mem- 
bers of the association. 

Louise Saylor, retiring president of 
the W. A. A., introduced Miss Anne 
F. Hodgkins, of New York City, who 
was the guest speaker for the even- 
ing. At the present time Miss Hodg- 
kins is vice-chairman of the Execu- 
tive Committee of the National Ama- 
teur Athletic Federation and head of 
the Girls Service League of New York 
City. As her subject she chose "Pre- 
serving Democracy through Democra- 
cy." Three ways for preserving de- 
mocracy as given by Miss Hodgkins 
are a willingness to work for it rath- 
er than fight for it, the maintaining 
of a tolerant attitude, and the put- 
ting of all spare time to good use. 
Miss Hodgkins also stressed the fact 
that the arts and cultural aspects of 
life must be kept alive. 

Guests of the W. A. A. for the ev- 
ening were Dr. and Mrs. Lynch, Dr.

Entertain Seniors 
At Anuual Reception 

Once again members of the senior 
class enjoyed a delightful social affair 
at the annual reception given for them 
by President and Mrs. Lynch in the 
dining room of the Hershey Commu- 
nity Building last evening at 6:30. 
Approximately one hundred of the 
graduates-to-be attended the dinner. 

The dining room and tables were 
beautified with floral decorations. Ta- 
bles were arranged for ten persons. 
At the guest table there were, besides 
Dr. and Mrs. Lynch, Miss Mary E. 
Gillespie, guest of honor, and officers 
of the class. 

The reception was purely social with 
no formal program planned. Dr. 
Lynch extended his greetings to the 
class, and Richard Baldwin, class 
president, responded with a few ap- 
propriate words.

Dressier Elected 
Senate President 
In Run-off Ballot 

Hackman And Mease 
To Fill Other Posts 

The eleven resident male students 
who were elected by the inhabitants 
of the Men's Dormitory in Tuesday 
afternoon's balloting to the Men's 
Senate for the next school year met 
in a special session at ten o'clock 
last night to name John Dressier as 
their president. This late meeting 
was called by John Moller, president 
of this* year's Senate, to settle the tie 
which had resulted in the voting for 
the office of president earlier in the 
day. At the same time Robert Hack- 
man, runner-up for the post of presi- 
dent, was selected to serve the group 
as its vice-president, while Ralph 
Mease was selected to act as secre- 

Of the nominees who had been ap- 
proved by the faculty in their meeting 
last Tuesday, Richard Bell, Edward 
Creeger, John Dressier, Robert Hack- 
man, and Fred Shadle have been chos- 
en by the present juniors to represent 
them next year as Senior Senators. 
Upon these five in large part will 
fall the responsibility of maintaining 
order in the dormitory. Joseph Carr, 
Robert Guinivan, Steven Kubisen, and 
Ralph Mease will be the Junior Sen- 
ators, and Walter Ebersole and Max 
Shively will be the Sophomore Sen- 

Of this group more than half have 
served on this governing body before. 
Shadle, Creeger, Carr, Kubisen, and 
Ebersole, however, will be serving in 
this capacity for the first time. 

Both old and new senators, together 
with the faculty advisers, will gather 
for their annual banquet, a roast 
chicken affair, next Tuesday evening 
at Moyer's Restaurant in Lebanon. 

Named To Congress 
By Day Students 

Representatives from the different 
classes in the Day Student Congress, 
governing body of the commuting men 
students, were elected Wednesday 
during the noon hour for the 1940-41 

Those who will be the senior mem- 
bers of the Congress next year are 
Raymond Hess, Robert Rapp, Robert 
Breen, and Joseph Conrad. Junior 
members are William Diefenderfer, 
Roger Morey, and Ralph Shay, and 
the sophomore members are Cyril 
Little and John Hampton. Election 
for a third member from the sopho- 
mores will have to be held within the 
next few days, since a three-way tie 
developed between Howard Paine, 
Carl Landis, and Frederick Frantz. 

The selection of officers of the Day 
Student Congress and the appoint- 
ment of a committee to enforce the 
Constitution drawn up this year by 
this governing body will take place 
as soon as the third sophomore Con- 
gressman is named.

420 Madison Ave. New York. n. y.

A very strong letter from the presi- 
dent of the college has been posted on 
a bulletin board in the Administra- 
tion Building in which notice is given 
that Walter S. Cowing, State Youth 
Administrator has requested that Leb- 
anon Valley College waive its right to 
an unused portion of its NYA allot- 
ment of $632.40. The college author- 
ities have compiled with this request. 
This can only mean that a number of 
students, either through their own 
indifference of attitude or that of 
their fellows, have been deprived of 
a sizable amount of assistant, which 
we feel, knowing the financial status 
of the average student, could well 
have been used to advantage in help- 
ing to pay expenses. 

Our president is quite justified in 
using the severest terms possible in 
scoring this amazing indifference on 
the part of certain applicants for aid, 
It is to be hoped, however, that the 
suggested discontinuance of N. Y. A. 
work on campus will not materialize, 
for there are some students who are 
fully appreciative of the aid they 
have received from the government in 
this way. That these appreciative 
ones now appear to be in the minori- 
ty is sufficient cause, to be sure, to 
arouse doubts as to the desirability 
of continuing the plan any longer. 
But so long as there 'be found a few 
worthy, should not this assistance be 
spared for their sakes? 

Is it not possible that administra- 
tive forces can in some measure at 
least remedy this present situation by 
following the indicated plan of in- 
creased strictness in dealing both 
with the few who have displayed any 
dishonesty in connection with their 
work and with that larger group who 
appear to be uninterested in earning 
their quotas? 

And is it not possible that this as- 
sistance could be made available to a 
wider group of persons who will be 
honest and earnest in carrying out 
their assigned tasks even though their 
checks do come from the government 
by broadening the scope of the N. Y. 
A. work and making it applicable on 
campus to work in new fields ?

By Digitus 

Ah me! registration turns one's 
thoughts to dreams of next year, but 
time forces us back to present even- 
tualities. Before we leave the quickly 
closing semester, there is a little mat- 
ter in the "blue" we have to settle 
with the profs. 

Only two weeks old and still rising 
in popularity is the latest dope (caf- 
fein to you) on the famous coke ma- 
chine. The evidence of its popularity is 
based on the rapidity with which the 
cavernous artic chamber is emptied. 
Ask Bert; he tries to keep it filled for 
the thirsty hordes of students and even 

To pass disparaging remarks con- 
cerning the new addition is as bad as 
insulting some fellow's girl. The oth- 
er day Bob Nichols, strove to impress 
upon his confreres the evils of drink- 
ing (cokes, of course) and the waste 
of money on a nickel grabbing robot; 
but the boys evidently attacked the ( 
preaching agitator. Taking Nichols 

bodily, they attempted to press him 
into the coin slot, but being unsuccess- 
ful they cast the protesting agitator 
into a nearby trash box. They might 
have known that slugs do not make 
the machine cough cokes. 

With soldier boys in our midst we 
are constantly asked military ques- 
tions. Freeman Rice asked a group of 
us what we would do first when clean- 
ing a rifle. Of course we all endeav- 
ored to give scientific answers, un- 
aware of army tricks. The first thing 
to do we learned is to inspect the 
number in order to see whether it is 
your own. This question was prompt 
ed by one of Freeman's experiences. It 
appears that our friend accidentally 
(?) got his rifle mixed with another 
soldier's, and did not realize the mis- 
take until the other fellow finished 
cleaning Freeman's gun. 

In the past several weeks a number 
of conserve lads have found time dur- 
ing the balmy afternoons to play ball 
on the campus. This appearance of 
the industrious boys caused the chem- 
ists to flock to the windows and cry 
out the question of old feud, "Is that 
all they have to do in the conserve?" 

EXTRA! Miller and Smee brew 
"fire water." The famous chemists 
set out to make "Listerine" by mixing 
the various ingredients listed on the 
bottle. Carl Sherk volunteered to try 
the synthetic product as a gargle, but 
it seemed quite different from the 
mother product. Poor Carl's lips, ton- 
gue, and mouth became red as a beet 
and as raw as a beefsteak. Not sat- 
isfied with these inflaming results, 
Doctor Miller went home and poured 
some of the brew in his poor dad's 
foot bath. He succeeded in removing 
the epidermis from his dad's "dogs." 
Oh! Doctors, here are your hats! 

The first coed graduate was 



Editor's note: Printed below is a let- 
ter received in the mail from a day 
student. Opinions expressed are to be 
understood as being those of the writ- 
er and do not necessarily conform with 
the editorial policy of LA VIE. 

Editor of LA VIE: 

Once upon a time some people were 
called together to legislate for the 
good of some 500 people. They had 
been appointed by popular vote to do 
the greatest good for the greatest 
number. This group called themselves 
the Student-Faculty Council and the 
place was L. V. C. 

Does anyone remember anything 
done by this group? Were they call- 
ed upon to represent the students 
when the chapel situation became a 
trouble spot ? To the best of my knowl- 
adge, no such thing was done. May I 
have the brass to inquire as to the 
purpose of such a body if they haven't 
even the power to be consulted on the 
student body's opinion on a matter 
of vital concern to every student ? At 
this point of the game they sound 
i bout as active and as strong a body 
as the Reichstag in Berlin. 

What about our day student gang? 
We usually get home just in time to 
eat with the rest of our family. Now 
vve'll be home just in time to eat a 
piping-hot warm-up. I know my moth- 
er is going to love spending an extra 
hour in the kitchen waiting for me to 
come home when the chances of get- 
ting a hop are nil. Of course she 
.ould hold dinner over and wait for 
me. The routine of twenty-three years 
in our house can be changed easily 

Then too, whose money is paying 
for most of the expenses of the col- 
lege? I do not remember ever having 
signed a contract upon entering to 
pay my bills faithfully and keep my 
mouth shut as to how I'm going to 
school. It rather looks like we are 
paying to be penalized. Why? A 
group of students raises an objection 
to the manner in which the college is 
run and the results are as follows: 

Gained — Nothing. 

Penalized — 1. 45 minutes additional 
chapel time per week, as well as the 
original 75 minutes per week. 2. 30 
minutes free time after the noon meal. 
3. 30 minutes tacked on to the after- 
noon classes. 

Somebody is losing and I think it is 
the students. 

n y a won 

The indifference evidenced by many 
listed N. Y. A. workers in their fail- 
ure to take advantage of the oppor- 
tunity afforded to help them pay ex- 
penses makes the continuance of N. Y. 
A. work on campus doubtful. In view 
of this situation, LA VIE'S reporter 
has inquired as follows: 

Is N. Y. A. assistance of any value ? 
Should such aid be discontinued in 
view of the apparent present student 
attitude toward it? 

Lucile Esbenshade, junior — I cer- 
tainly would not want to see N. Y. A. 
assistance discontinued, for there are 
students who need it and use it. I do 
think it could be administered more 

Paul Horn, senior — Better supervis- 
ion and a wider scope of work should 
be included in the N. Y. A. program. 
For example, there are many spots on 
campus that could still be beautified 
at little cost. 

Hans Uberseder, freshman — Yes. It 
should be continued for those who real- 
ly want it. There is no reason why a 
few should suffer for those who are 

Jane Ehrhart, junior — Yes. But 
there is no reason for a student to be 
dishonest in turning in the amount of 
hours which he has worked. Aid should 
be stopped in such cases. 

David Shaner, freshman— Such aid 
is of value and so should not be dis- 
continued. There are some students 
who show the wrong attitude toward 
it, but there are those also who show 
that they do need it and do work for 

Lorin Fleming, freshman — I think 
that there are some who are receiv- 
ing assistance and do not fully real- 
ize just what aid they are receiving. 
The administration should develop a 
better plan of work distribution. 

If there ever was a need for com- 
promise, it is at present. First the 
students are harassed with a rotten 
chapel system. They rise to stand on 
their own feet and voice an opinion 
and what happens? They find them- 
selves tramped back in their hole 
twice as deep as before. If the new 
arrangement is representative of what 
most of the people like, show them to 
me and I'll believe it. Right now I 
think that 90% believe it to be just 
what it really is, an 85-15 compromise 
in favor of the opposition.

prise, as 

effective as any was Fresh- 

man John Walters, Bucky for short 

Although he yielded two runs, they 
can not be charged against him be- 
cause he was not responsible for those 
runners being on base. 

Our disappointment in our tennis 
team can't be kept silent. Winning 
only one match, at this writing, out 
of five is not an exceptional record. 
Pardon us for mentioning it, but it 
seems that our number two man is 
winning more matches than the lead- 
ing lady. We wonder, as do others, if 
he isn't in the wrong slot. 

Developing in fine style is Sam 
Grimm, the third man, who should 
come along all right for next year to 
perhaps lead the tennis squad. 

Heard by several L. V. tennis op- 
ponents: "That number two man is 
the steadiest player I've ever met." 
Nice going, Danny. 

Did you hear about the ball player 
who backed against the fence to catch 
the third out, then let the ball bounce 
off his head, over the fence, for a 
homer with the bases loaded? 
Another cheer leader enters our 
sport parade today. He's a small fel- 
low, but he has a heart as big as the 
best of them. He keeps fighting even

Kuhn Loses Control 
In Hectic Eighth; 
Bucknell Wins 4-1 

Yesterday afternoon the Blue and 
White baseball team, playing the Bis- 
ons of Bucknell at Lewisburg, Pa., 
lost by the score of 4-1 to their hosts 
on a wind-swept field. The local nine 
played a fairly good brand of ball 
throughout and made a serious bid for 
their second diamond win of the year. 
In fact, until that fatal eighth inning, 
Coach Ullery's boys appeared to be in 
charge of matters and were leading 
their opponents by a 1-0 score. 

But in the eighth period Frankie 
Kuhn, who for the seven innings pre- 
ceding had tossed the old apple across 
the plate in a commendable fashion 
and permitted the batsmen facing him 
but three hits, suddenly lost his con- 
trol completely. Before that inning 
was over he had allowed the Bisons 
four additional hits, three of which 
were doubles, and had helped one 
Bucknellian around the sacks with a 
free ticket to first, all of which added 
together to spell out a total of four 
tallies for the Lewisburg nine. Al- 
though Frank lasted the inning out, 
the damage had been done and the 
game ended with no favorable alter- 
ations of the score. 

The Valley's lone marker was 
chalked up in the fifth inning of the 
fray when Matala was squeezed 
across the keystone plate with Walk 
doing the successful squeezing. 

Ullerymen Defeat 
Loyola To Garner 
Season's First Win 

Kuhn Hurls Entire Game, 
Smashes Out Circuit Hit 

The Flying Dutchmen finally broke 
their losing streak last P'riday by de- 
feating the Loyola baseball nine by 
a 6-5 decision. Frankie Kuhn did a 
fine job on the mound, striking out 10, 
walking 2, and allowing only seven 
hits in the nine inning contest. 

The Ullerymen were forced to come 
from behind on two occasions and fi- 
nally kept ahead by a two run rally 
in their half of the eighth. The visit- 
ors scored in the second inning by 
virtue of singles by Ryan and Dona- 
hue and a triple by Bacon that shot 
the visiting batsmen around the dia- 

Ludwig scored in the third for L. 
V. on a single by Mease after the Blue 
and White fielder had smacked out a 
single and then gained second on a 
steal. Loyola came back in their half 
of the fourth canto when Gabe Poggi 
slammed one to deep center and scored 
before Ludwig had captured the ball. 

Kuhn cut the Greyhound lead to 3-2 
when he knocked one of Schwallenber- 
ger's tosses through the open gate in 
left field and completed the circuit 
of the bases. The Dutchmen went in- 
to the lead in the fifth with some fine 
hitting. Ludwig smacked a single in- 
to center with one out. Mease waited 
and finally gained a free pass to first. 
The visiting hurler tried to catch Lud- 
wig off second, but his peg rolled into 
center. Both runners advanced on the 
error. Staley was thrown out at first 
on an infield roller. Smith followed, 
with two out, by slashing a single 
down the left lie Id line to score both 

No additional scoring took place un- 
til the eighth when the Greyhounds 
took the lead by shoving two runs 
across the plate. Clancy was nicked 
by Kuhn and then advanced to third 
when Malloy sacrificed. Brady drove 
Clancy home with a triple, and romp- 
ed across the plate himself when Don- 
ahue worked the old squeeze play. 
Ludwig pulled in Bacon's drive on the 
run to end the scoring at that point. 

Smith boomed a double into left in 
the Blue and White half of the eighth 
to start the rally. The next two men 
went down without helping the cause. 
Chris Walk was hit by a pitched ball 
and Rakow singled to score Smith and 
advance Walk to third. Schillo beat 
out an infield grounder- by a fraction 
at ti rst. Walk scored on the same play 
to win for the Dutchmen. 

Ludwig pulled in McCarthy's smash 
into center by another fine running 
catch. Mease then followed with two 
brilliant pick-ups and tosses to first 
to end the game in the first half of 
the ninth. 

The Dutchmen came out of the bat- 
ting slump of their last game to sup- 
port Kuhn's fine twirling exhibition. 
Smith, Schillo, and Ludwig each 
smashed out two hits of the ten gar- 
nered by the Valleyites. Splendid in- 
field work and sensational fielding on 
the grass combined to support Kuhn 
with errorless ball.

Superior Drew Team 
Sets Back Netmen 
With Little Effort 

The crack tennis team from Drew 
University visited A n n v i 1 1 e last 
Thursday afternoon to trim the Val- 
ley racketeers by a 6-3 score. 

Danny Seiverling, who gave up 
baseball this year to try his fortune 
on the clay courts, chalked up the 
only Blue and White victory in the 
singles when he downed Levitt in 
straight sets. Lentz and Sam Grimm 
registered a win in the doubles by 
turning back Levitt and Carpon. 
Leading 6-2, the Drew team forfeited

Valley Nine Bows 
To Delaware Team 
In Hit-Filled Fray 

Three Pitchers Unable 
To Keep Visitors Down 

Lebanon Valley's baseball nine lost 
its fourth ball game of the season by 
a score of 12-11 when its pitching 
staff failed to subdue the visiting 
batsmen from Delaware. Katchmer 
started on the mound and allowed 4 
hits before his mates could make an 
out. Weiler took over at that point 
and allowed only 5 hits till the end 
of the fifth. But the sophomore hurler 
offered 10 free passes to the initial 
sack and was relieved when Coach 
Ullery sent Walters to the hill. The 
Connecticut southpaw finished the 
game giving only 2 hits and 3 walks 
during his four inning stay on the 

Daly, starting pitcher for the Blue 
Hens, was fairly effective until the 
fifth when the Dutchmen staged a 
rally and went into the lead with a 
score of 9-8. Tibbitt came in from 
center field at that time to take over 
the hurling job for the remainder of 
the game to hold the Blue and White 
to 5 hits. Tibbitt offered no base on 
balls and Daly gave only two, while 
the L. V. hurler gave a total of 16. 

The home team garnered a total of 
14 hits in 39 official trips to the plate 
while the visitors blasted out 11 bin- 
gles in 34 attempts at the plate. Big- 
Ed. Schillo smacked out 3 for 4 and 
Mease, Staley, Walk and Weiler each 
were accredited with two hits. Smith's 
batting average took a sudden drop 
when the Valley 3rd baseman failed 
to get a hit. 

Clark was the slugger for the Hens, 
slashing out three hits in five tries. 
Crowley and Tibbitt were the only 
visiting players able to score more 
than one hit. Taking advantage of 
the numerous balks issued by the 
Valley pitchers the Delaware outfit, 
though out-hit, bunched their hits to 
take the game. Extra base blows were 
very helpful in driving runners across 
the plate. 

The only bright spot in the game 
put up by the Dutchmen was Ralph 
Mease's sterling play at shortstop. 
The fairhaired sophomore played 
heady ball, slashed out two hits, and 
came up with the ball on seven oc- 
casions to throw men out at the bases. 
He personally took care of five outs 
and turned a hard hit drive into an 
unassisted double play.

day studentettes 

By Wanda Ride 
All the groaning gals who simply 
couldn't stop talking about all those 
long months of sub-zero weather, have 
a new complaint to dote upon — •name- 
ly: it's too hot. The D. S. R. has 
been abandoned in favor of the more 
inviting spot provided by the grassy 
turf (poetical, isn't it?) under the 
shade trees around South Hall. Mar- 
ian Kreider was seen there, expound- 
ing to the birds, I suppose. They 
probably were a more appreciative 
audience for Marian's final speech 
than she could have found anywhere 

During lunch hour in the D. S. R. 
some mighty queer mysteries were 
explained. If you happened to be in 
the Library when Marian Reiff woke 
herself by stamping on the floor, you 
probably wondered about Marian, who, 
heretofore, seemed sane enough. 
Here's the story as she related it. 
Having nothing to do, Marian fell 
asleep, and instead of the proverbial 
"profound slumber," she fell to 
dreaming. Repressed everywhere else, 
the day student spirit manifested it- 
self in her dreams, for Marian dream- 
ed that she was driving — not care- 
fully, either, for she was going over 
a cliff. She explains the stamping 
as her foot jamming on the brake! 
It's a good enough tale for us, but we 
can't be too sure that we know ALL 
that's back of it. 

Dottie Bomberger has been looking 
quite starry-eyed during the last few 
weeks, with no apparent reason fur- 
ther than the reason she's had all win- 
ter. But then another mystery was 
solved, when a certain chemistry 
studentette reported that in her con- 
versation with a chemistry student, 
he assured her that he wasn't kidding 
when he said he'd like very much to 
get married! Putting two and two to- 
gether, we get four. Do you? 

Shirley Carl and B. A. Rutherford 

are already planning how to spend 
some spare afternoon next winter. 
Their idea is to visit Miss Leisey as 
she meets the class and to render a 
detailed account of her escapades as 
a day studentette at L. V. C. Both B. 
A. and Shirley seem to think that the 
class will appreciate it as much as 
Toots will. 

According to all reports given — 
among Monday morning's weekly crop 
of yawns — the Prom was a huge suc- 
cess. If you missed it, we recommend 
Touchie to give you a detailed account 
of everything! 

Another William Tell, in the person 
of Grace E. Smith, has joined the 
ranks of the Royal Order of Expert 
Archers ( ?). And now, for some un- 
intelligible reason, the men in the 
dorm slam down windows and run for 
cover as soon as they see an arrow. 
Can you explain it, Gracie? 

Does anyone know what has be- 
come of the neat little job Evelyn 
Mages was driving last week? We're 
absolutely positive that there will 
never be seen another '28 Ford like it! 
We feel that Evie is almost too selfish 

allowing us one fleeting glance at 

the dream — or maybe nightmare — 
then snatching it away just as the 
beauty of it begins to penetrate. 
Please, bring it back for just one more 
glance, or is that taking a chance! 

A nice little chat we had this week, 
even if it was one-sided and pointless, 
so — so long! 

Green Blotter Elects 
Trout, Geyer Officers 

The final meeting of the Ink Spots 
was held at the home of Dr. and Mrs. 
St ruble on Tuesday evening. Twelve 
of the members were present to elect 
the two officers of the club who will 
be Head Scop, Floda Trout, and 
Keeper-of-the-Wotd-Hord, Phoebe 

Works of some of the members were 
read which included a short story by 
Carl Ehrhart, a sketch by Phoebe 
Geyer, poetry by Sam Gittlen, an in- 
troduction to a story by Floda Trout, 
poetry by Evelyn Evans, and a de- 
scription by Martha Davies. At the 
special request of the club Dr. Stru- 
ble presented some articles he has had 
published in well-known magazines. 

In appreciation of Dr: and Mrs. 
Struble's entertaining and fostering 
the club during the year the members 
presented them with a gift for their

Biologists Plan Week End 
Of Activity At Mt. Gretna 

By Marjorie Holly 

The Biology Club has planned what 
should be an exciting week end at 
Gretna. We leave on Friday after- 
noon, arriving in time for a dip in 
the lake, we hope. After a bit of a 
feed, we shall again, as last year, be- 
gin our nocturnal explorations and 
find many species of animals, maybe. 

After resting (?) those tired zool- 
ogy stooges will have to get up for 
their eight o'clock lab. The entire 
class and any interested club members 
have a bird study hike in store for 
them. I hear Dr. Derickson is will- 
ing to continue the study until the 
pupils desire to call "time out." In 
the meantime lunch, swimming, soft- 
ball, volleyball, hiking, and other rec- 
reation has been provided. We'll be 
sorry to see some of the seniors leave 
for their Ball on Saturday night, but 
they'll return to conclude the week- 
end with our extra-special Sunday 
dinner — not chicken this year, Dobbs. 
And then, with a run up the moun- 
tain as a means of digesting the "sec- 
onds" we shouldn't have eaten, when 
we get back to L. V. C.'s campus, we 
shall be in fit condition to crack the 
books — wait and see!

/. R. C. Cabinet Holds 
Last Meeting of Year 

The cabinet of the International Re- 
lations Club held its last meeting of 
the school year last Thursday even- 
ing, May 9, in the basement of the Li- 
brary. The main discussion was on 
the effect of the Norwegian conflict 
upon the United States and was led 
by Carl Ehrhart. Further discussions 
were on the state of United States 
preparedness or unpreparedness and 
the recent happenings in China, led 
by Ralph Shay and Martha Davies 


The work of the club for the past 
year was reviewed. The meetings in- 
cluded discussions on Latin America, 
relations between Japan and the Uni- 
ted Spates, United States neutrality 
policy, the Scandinavian situation as 
well as the important personages of 
the War and many other questions. 
The club was also reorganized into 
two groups, which has proved of great 
benefit to the members. A poll was 
also conducted to determine the opin- 
ion of students on world issues. On 
the whole the International Relations 
Club has had a most successful year 
under the able supervision of Profess- 
or Miller to whom the success of the 
year is due.

schools. An explanation of the stu- 
dent exchange system was given- by 
Frances Prutzman. Helen Kreider

in her home. Miss Kreider also played 
several records of German popular 
music which were sent to her from

President o fthe United States, has 
been selected as the speaker for the 
Seventy-first Commencement exerci- 
ses. Dr. Babson has not made known 
his topic as yet. 

Novel Lawn Party 
Sponsored By Y's 

Strains of music, flickering of 
Japanese lanterns, gay laughter, and 
figures of couples and groups about 
the campus between the Men's Dormi- 
tory and North Hall gave evidence of 
the gala p re-exam fling sponsored by 
the new "Y" cabinets on Tuesday 
evening from eight to ten. The large 
attendance of both dormitory and day 
students is evidence enough of its 

For decorations the Japanese lan- 
terns served as a novel touch although 
the candles furnished little light and 
made charred paper of some of them. 
Card tables with chairs about them 
were the places of bitter Chinese 
Checker and Criss-Cross contests. 
Most popular of all corners was the 

one where pink punch and a variety 
of cookies were supplied to all until, 
all too early, the supply gave out. 

The Lebanonian orchestra, who or- 
iginally thought the whole idea a 
"screwy" one, conceded as the even- 
ing progressed that a lawn dance 
could be worth while, for tennis courts 
and much of the lawn were peopled by 
hopping or gliding figures who re- 
sponded to the urge of toe-tickling 
rhythm. Bridge lights lighted the or- 
chestrations while illumination for 
the guests was provided by a large, 
obliging moon. 

In charge of the arrangements for 
the fete were Anna Mae Bomberger, 
Marlin Espenshade, Edna Rutherford, 
Floda Trout, William Reed, and Fred 
Shadle. Among the faculty members 
present were Dr. and Mrs. Black, 
Miss Lietzau, Miss Henderson, Miss 
Moyer, and Mrs. Bender. 





Published every Thursday throughout the 
college year except holiday vacations and 
examination week by the students of Leb- 
anon Valley College, Annvllle, Pennsylvania. 

Subscription price: $1.00 per year. Five 
cents per single copy. Entered as second 
class matter at the Annvllle, Pa., post office 
under the Act of March 3, 1879.

No sighs, no regrets, no tears, no 
backward glances; glorious memories, 
hopes, smiles, ambition must make 
your commencement, seniors. Mem 
ories of your happy times, hopes of 
what will next befall, smiles for those 
you leave behind, and ambition to 
make your goal— these we hope every 
graduate will feel as he actually re- 
ceives that document for which he's 
striven for four brief years. When 
he hears the words of the commence- 
ment address, whether encouraging or 
discouraging, let him remember, 
whether chaos or calm be in store for 
the future, that there is definitely 
some work he can do to help civiliza- 
tion keep an even keel. 

As the graduates solemnly receive 
their parting advice, undergraduates 
will recall how many friends are leav- 
ing them, but how glad they will be 
that they have made those friends 
from whom they part. They will see 
in gown-clad figures a challenge to 
follow them. Most of all they can 
resolve to complete their college car- 
eer in as fine a style as the seniors 
and be guided by their successes and 

Row back of row of solemn faces 
are going to look toward the front of 
the College Church on June tenth. Just 
as many minds must turn to the fu- 
ture willingly and courageously as 
seniors become graduates.

By Ombre 

Comes the time to say "bon voy- 
age," dear faithful readers! 'Tis with 
great contrition, remorse, and tear- 
filled eyes (yeah?) that we depart 
from thee for three not-long-enough 
months. Then latest scandal will 
reach you via letters from the know- 
alls— you'll probably relish it more 
that way anyhow! ! But don't forget 
to pass the news on to us, too, until 
next year when we return (we're op- 
timists) to give you the lowdown! 

* * * 

The past week end did itself justice 
all right in more ways than one. The 
beautiful cases of sunburn and poison 
strolling about give evidence that Mt. 
Gretna really gets "on" your skin — 
just ask Espie, Dobbs, Carpy, Ellen, 
or Irene! The Dot-Don combination 
chilled considerably at Gretna — a let- 
ter from a former sweetheart gave 
the latter person a change of heart 
and a good case of the "blues" from 
which not even Dot could rescue him. 

* * * 

The Jigger Board had its annual 
spring checking-up spree recently and 
made a pretty good haul with no less 
than fifteen young maidens on which 
to give vent to their ire. Either the 
girls are becoming more careless or 
the "Jiggies" are becoming more care- 

if * * 

Just to show us their hearts are in 
the right place the "Jiggies" are 
giving the couples a break for the re- 
mainder of this year and perhaps 
next. Dating in the parlors will be 
permitted until ten o'clock each week 
night. For this much needed amend- 
ment to the girls' rules, we congratu- 
late you! ! 

* * * 

Here's to bigger and better Lawn 
Parties ! The one the other night was 
a splendid success. The Y's are to be 
commended for being "pioneers" in 

this very delightful social event! 

* * * 

Several nights ago at the carnival 
in Lebanon a sideshow barker set us 
to wondering about one of our co-eds 
from South Hall. It seems he was 
saying something meant especially for 
the wives in the crowd and kept look- 
ing straight at Renee as if address- 
ing her alone. Excuse us, but does 
Max know you have such a "wifely" 

* * * 

When Jane's Penn romeo appeared 
on campus Bill kicked up quite a fuss. 
His anger has subsided considerably, 
however, since Howie has returned 
to his own campus and Jane has now 
patched things up with Willie. 

Saturday night must have been 
"stand-up" night in North Hall or 
perhaps the boys just mislaid their 
engagement books. Anyway, several 
young pretties from said dorm found 
pacing the floor didn't help much — the 
boyfriends either arrived hours late 
or else didn't come at all. Tony must 
have lost another shirt, Joan! 

Five men and a girl! This is the 
latest Kissinger man set-up. The poor 
fishes this time are a Martin, a Gol- 
lam, a Wright (can't be right!), a 
Conley, and a Carr (this to too 
much ! !) . 

Did you know a stork has brought 
to our campus a fine baby girl. And 
tliat is why Prof. Stine has failed to 
meet several of his classes this week. 
Congratulations, you lucky parents! 

* * * 

Before a good case of writer's 
cramps sets in and keeps us from 
taking our exams next week (we'd 
hate to miss 'em!) we're quittin'! Lots 
of what it takes to all of you in your 
finals and happy vacationing! 

c a a course 

At the present time there is some 
doubt as to whether the civilian pilot 
training course, instituted this year 
at L. V. C, will continue next year, 
due to the small number of students 
who have notified their intentions of 
enrolling. In regards to this problem 
LA VIE placed the following question 
before various members of the student 
body : 

Is it worth while to continue the 
civilian pilot training course at L. V. 
C. in view of the apparent lack of 
interest toward it by the student 

John Lynch — The course has been 
my most practical one during my four 
years in college. My advice to any 
student interested in learning to fly is 
to take this course, because it is a good 
chance of obtaining a pilot's license 
for $40 instead of $400. 

Irene Barber — I think that if there 
is no interest created in the course, 
it should be discontinued. But it ap- 
pears to me to be a splendid oppor- 
tunity of showing patriotism to one's 
country. I also think that an interest 
should be created among the girls. 

William Reed — Yes, I think civilian 
pilot training is a good means of pre- 
paring for national defense and pro- 
viding pilots for America's air force. 

Harry Fehl — In my opinion the 
course is very worth while because it 
may not only serve as an occupation 
but also may prove beneficial to oui 
country in the future. 

Warren Silliman — I definitely think 
the course should be continued because 
interest has just been kindled, and 
taking al lthings into consideration, 
results have proven very satisfactory 
so far. 

George Ziegler — Yes, I think the 
course should be continued by all 
means. It affords the student an oc- 
cupation to rely on if he cannot find 
a job in his particular profession upon 
graduation from college. It is also 
an inexpensive way to secure an aero 
nautical training. 

Marie Peters — I think it is a good 
idea for girls and fellows alike, but I 
think that the fellows could put the 
training to more use, and therefore 
the course should be continued on that 

Ruth Kreider — I also am of the 
opinion that those girls interested in 
flying should be urged to enroll in the 

Carl Weidman — In my estimation 
those students who are interested in 
flying and don't take the course are 
passing up a good opportunity to learn 
to do so. I also believe that more 
interest in the course should be arous- 
ed among the students. 

seniors say 

Many strange and contradictory- 
answers were received on the ques- 
tionnaires given the seniors last Fri- 
day. Similarly conducted surveys in 
other years revealed a wide variety of 
opinion, but this year's returns top 
them all, although certain opinions re- 
mained the same or changed only to 
a slight degree. 

Dr. H. H. Shenk, Professor of His- 
tory, was again voted the most popu- 
lar professor on the campus. In re- 
taining the position he has received 
in other polls, Dr. Shenk has demon- 
strated his ability to win the students 
to him and retain their interest. Dr. 
Shenk is noted for his timely anec- 
dotes that throw his classes into gales 
of laughter. 

Many answers jvere received for the 
question concerning the most difficult 
course at L. V. C. Philosophy 32, how- 
ever, received more than twice as 
many votes as any other course for 
this dubious honor. A close race for 
the second position took place between

he'd call signals and throw what he 
wanted to. He lost the ball game.

He was a good ball player in high 
school, coming from a region where 
they have to be good or they don't 
play. He came to Lebanon Valley and 
continued being good, in fact better. 
He's been hurt as often as the most 
of them, but he's never been known 
to cry out in pain or ask for pity. 
Rather, he shuns it. Butch Herman 
has cracked open many holes with his 
blocking, has broken up much inter-

ignoble role of a linesman, but he's one

The Flying Dutchmen came through 
with their second win of the season 
when they defeated the Drexel nine 
at the local diamond last Saturday. 
Johnny Walters took the mound at the 
beginning and stayed there through- 
out the game while giving up nine 
scattered hits and three free passes 
to first. 

The return to form of the L. V. 
batsmen was noticed when they poled 
out 17 hits in 39 official trips to the 
plate. Staley pounded out 4 for 5 in 
his best day at bat this year, Mease 
took 3 for 4 and Captain Chris Walk 
slammed out a homer, a double and a 
single in five times at bat. Two of 
Staley's hits were a double and a 
triple. Don Ludwig slapped out a 
double while suffering a poor day at 
the plate. Kuhn was the only Valley 
man who failed to get a hit. 

The Valley scored a run in their 
half of the first to take the lead. 
Drexel came back in the third to drive 
three runs across the plate and gain 
a 3-1 advantage. The Blue and White 
tied the ball game up in the fourth 
only to see the visitors take a 4-3 
lead in the first half of the fifth. The 
Dutchmen ganged up on McTanney 
in the fifth, driving the Drexel Hurler 
from the mound with a 4 run barrage. 

The Valley men continued the pace 
in the sixth when Evans followed Mc- 
Tanney from the hill. The Dutchmen 
scored three times in the frames to 
lead 10-4 Vandergrift kept the home 
,,;,„ Aggers in check in the seventh,

Muhl Pinch Hitter 
Raps Out Home Run 
To Save Ball Game 

Presenting a ninth inning rally that 
spoiled Lebanon Valley's chances of 
winning three straight, Muhlenberg 
handed the Dutchmen their second 
league loss, 4-3. Bucky Walters was 
handed his first loss against one win 
when he served up a home run ball 
to a pinch-hitter with one man aboard. 

The game assumed the aspect of a 
typical L. V. -Muhlenberg game with 
one team scoring and the other team 
pushinga cross a run to tie things 
up. But in the seventh the Valley 
earned ar un on some timely hitting 
to go ahead, 3-2. 

The first Mule up in the ninth hit 
to right field, getting on safely when 
Ed Schillo dropped the ball. A left- 
handed pinch-hitter was put in to hit 
behind the runner. Walters balked 
sending the man to second. Imme- 
diately a right-handed hitter was sent 
in to hit for the pinch hitter. The 
strategy worked, because he poled the 
ball into deep left center for a circuit 
clout aand the ball game. At that, 
he was almost nabbed at the plate. In 
its half of the ninth the Valley start- 
ed to threaten, but the visitors tight- 
ened to carry off the honors of the 

At that the Valley didn't look so 
bad, nipping off four runs at the plate 
aand retiring seven men who tried to 
show up Sea Biscuit on the base 

but gave up two runs in the eighth. 
The score remained at 12-4 until the 
end of the game. 

Walters started in fine style, but 
got into hot water in the third. From 
then on the left-handed Connecticut 
hurler held the visitors in check. Used 
only as a relief hurler in past games, 
Walters had little opportunity to show 
what he could really do under fire. 
Di Larso, Clyde, and Styers were the 
only Drexel men who could touch his 

Heady ball playing and timely hit- 
ting supported Walters in the best 
performance of the year by the L. V. 
C. nine. Mease, Staley, Walk, Schillo, 
and Walter each slammed out two or 
more hits and took care of the three 
opposing pitchers from start to fin- 
ish. The extra base blows were valu- 
able in clearing the bases after sin- 
gles and walks set up scoring oppor- 
tunities for the Valley. The home 
team also played errorless ball for the 
second time during this season. Er- 
rors and failure to hit in the pinches 
along with poor pitching have result- 
ed in defeats for the Blue and White 
on other occasions this year.

Lebanon Valley gained its second 
consecutive victory on the diamond 
when Juniata's rally late in the game 
played on Monday fell short of the 
necessary tallies. Frankie Kuhn turn- 
ed in his second win of the season in 
allowing only seven hits. Twirling 
hitless ball for the first five innings, 
the L. V. C. hurler weakened in the 
sixth and eighth, but had enough 
stamina to finish. 

The Blue and White started the 
game in fine style by smacking out 
three hits and driving two runs across 
the plate by virtue of Staley's triple 
and singles by Smith and Kuhn. Schil- 
lo scored in the second after a sharp 
single into right by Weiler. Both 
teams went scoreless in the third and 
fourth innings, but the home team 
drove two runs in the fifth to take a 

5- lead. Singles by Smith, Kuhn and 
Walk caused the collapse of Shire who 
had replaced Irvin, the starting pitch- 

Mease scored on Staley's single in 
the sixth after the Blue and White 
shortstop had reached first on a hit 
and then stolen to second. The visit- 
ors also managed to push a run across 
in this frame when Botteicher and 
Valigorsky nicked Kuhn for singles. 

The Dutchmen held Juniata score- 
less in the seventh and failed to score 
in their own half of that inning. Three 
hits, a walk and an error helped the 
visitors to cut the Valley margin to 

6- 4. The Blue and White could not 
score in the eighth and took the field 
in the opening half of the ninth with 
victory in sight. 

Juniata threw a scare into Valley 
hopes in the last inning when they 
took advantage of two hits and an 
error to score. The home team slicked 
to put down the uprising at that point 
and win the ball game. 

Kuhn deserves credit for his com- 
mendable performance on the mound 
despite slipshod ball playing by his 
mates in the field. Kuhn gave up on- 
ly seven hits, struck out seven, and 
walked three. The Valley repeated its 
hitting spree of the Drexel game by 
lashing out 14 hits.

Going to the other extreme it was 
found that Sociology 13 and History 
42 received the same number of votes 
for the least difficult course. Math. 
13, History 46 and Education 13 each 
received a number of votes. 

Economics 16 was voted the most 
beneficial course on the schedule while 
English 66, Phychology 14, and His- 
tory of Music ran close behind in sec-

May Day, 1940, was selected by the 
greatest number of seniors as the 
most outstanding event of their col- 
lege careers. Graduation, the "Mur- 
der," the Phi Alpha Epsilon dinner 
and the society anniversary dances 
were also accorded votes on this topic. 

"Rebecca" was voted the best mo- 
tion picture of the year with "G. W. 
T. W." running a close second. The 
former received 27 votes and the lat- 
ter 23. "Dr. Cyclops," "Wuthering 
Heights" and "Northwest Passage ' 
each received one vote. 

Very interesting answers were re- 
ceived for the question on pet peeves 
of college life at L. V. C. The chapel 
period and 8 o'clock classes tied with 
5 votes each. The Day Students' 
Room followed with 4 votes, and the 
cut system, required courses, the gym, 
unnecessary noises in the conservatory 
and dormitory, and the food served 
in the dining hall each received 3 
votes. 1 

Twenty-eight seniors said that they 
had plans for next year, but only a 
few were of a definite nature. Twenty- 
one stated that they had no prospects 
in mind. Seven plan to go on to grad- 
uate school, eight plan to teach, 7 will 
seek jobs and three will enter a theo- 
logical seminary. One senior plans to 
coach, another will take up flying. 

The Franklin and Marshall football 
game of October, 1939, was selected 
as the most outstanding sport event 
of the past four years. Other events 
named were the P. M. C. football 
game of 1936, the St. Joseph's foot- 
ball game of 1938, the 1939 Frosh 
Basketball team, I 

Thirty expressed the belief that we 
can stay out of the European strug- 
gle while 16 held the opposite view. 
Some filled in answers such as "per- 
haps," "we'd better," "the odds are 
against it," and "I hope so," while 
others failed to answer as in the other 

The erection of a new gymnasium 
was selected by many of the seniors 
as the improvement that they would 
like best to see made at Lebanon Val-

the women, also received its share of 
votes. I
